Sunday Poems: 91 / 500


Rating: 5.0

Vagabond the husband..
Job to job, place to place
Loitering in unsteady wandering
His own wishful ideology

Towed wife followed in silence
Dragged to get abraded
Of frequent packing and unpacking

Fueled his reasonless loathing routine
Smoldering her sparkles to rupture
Bursted the female heart one day

On decision of no divorce
Her silent angst but to settle
An occupation and destination
Permanent for herself

All with blessed guts she scored
Raising high her children
Her status, her house..a happy home

And her vagabond hubby...
A regular Sunday-visitor
Hosteling to relish her

'Jansi Rani'(I call her so) ..
Her clever silence is composed
For her daughters, for their marriage
So not to break her own wedlock

Life is itself a compromise, parents who reall y love their children have no alternate but to continue as sposes, whatever the circumstances may be.

That's being Clever.... than Courageous An intelligent look into History and Current Surely reveals whats there in store and not to hop The one who can adjust in the given carpet Surely to reap enough yeild. Better to be aside the fire pan Than being fried on an open ground At summer, fire irritates At winter it warms up Cool thoughts.... I don't know... how many agree... But... is a simple fact. Good subject... good read.

Ma'am very well penned. This is what always happen. Women always bow and obey only for good but when it comes for me they never never do.
