Hidden Shades - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Sunlight and shadow are the two contrasting shades.
One give sunburns, other heals
Shadow cannot stop following sunlight
Like wife following hubby
trying to find out wats going on behind!

Day and night are the two sides of one coin.
Its like spouses when one comes in other goes out
It has other shades too like wife and lover.
One wake you up and other put you down to bed.

Love and hatred are two flowers of one branch.
Its like standing in two boats moving in opposite.
Wife in one
And lover in another.
Wife is beloved as long as everything is hidden like shadow.
But the moment she bring it to limelight hatred follows her.
Tats the another shade.

Nature is playing hide and seek so is the life too.
What ever be the shades of life......
A forgiveness is the only shade,
Which will give love, peace and happiness.

Forgiveness is so unique, because it is very difficult to reach.
Once reached
We can tell that
The very purpose of life is achieved.

How can I forget dear, these are the different shades which makes our Life!
