Career Demolition Drive - Poem by .Pd. is here
Gazing at your image in the mirror
You see your past, your dreams and aspirations
And compare it with the
But the picture isn’t how you had
Planned it to look.
You look at them-your kids,
And you see the younger you in them.
Influencing their mind
With your aspirations and unfulfilled dreams
They succumb to be your mere shadows.
>>Stuck up with a career choice not as per their wish<<
They live on, knowing things would have been special
Had they heeded their heart’s desire
Rather than following the
Path you wanted them to aspire.
Through their success, you-the parent
See your dream coming through
You did not achieve it, but they did it for you.
>>Parents, a hearty Congratulation to you<<
You’ve successfully defeated your defeat
By defeating your child’s dreams.
Your child is naïve no more,
From their conditioned mind of yesterday
The brainwashing has been washed away
And the repercussion is coming true.
>>You are happy- They aren’t, <<
For you realized your dream through them
Demolishing the one they wanted to garner.
Your child’s child may suffer now, for you killed
Your child’s aspiration for your own one;
Maybe they’ll do the same
And get their dreams fulfilled via their daughter or son.
>>Another ‘Career Demolition Drive’ is underway<<
Break this drive - Stop the demolition
Free your child from shackles of
Your dreams, your aspirations
And to let them live their own.
