Indira Renganathan

Life Has Its Pitfalls

Life has its meanders and
Pitfalls

How could my love hide
All these before

Having fallen into those
Pitfalls
Now I trust and prefer
Wedlock that warns me of
Those pitfalls

Thanks to wedlock
As I'm a lotus now
Out of life's mire

Yet

You set out to
Earn money
Drowned in money power
You are there and there
I am here and here

Love has lost its crown

Moon's asking its sun
'How long, for how long
Poles apart should we be
Like this? '

Sun's doubting
'I'm giving her
Enough light..
What else she wants? '

Who can tell moon that
Sun is just a fire ball
With no heart
