Happy As A Divorcee. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I’m a divorcee, and a mother
Of a young daughter who resembles me.
Solitude is there but does not bother me.
My feeling of my figure dispels it.

I am curvaceous, thanks to my dancing.
My singleness earn worthy men friends,
Some of whom struck me and drew sexually.
Keeping a distance, I play my cards well.

Love like hate is a kind of emotion
That can come to one at variant times.
Without a husband, I am free of guilt.
I feel happy as I’m a divorcee.
