Dismissed - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

curt words in an instant dismissal
finally realizing
learned blood is thicker than your soul
destined for greatness, you stopped short
on your way to smell the flowers
its a wonder
your paradox life
of talking and actions
one can only stand in awe
hoping you won't fall
problem is
no one will be there to catch you
if you do
because we all got our pink slips
