Relationships Are Like Public Toilets... - Poem by Mohamed Umar Farooq
You said relationships
Are the same like public toilets.
One who is in desperately wants to come out
And the one waiting out
Eager enough to get in.
But which relationship you talk about?
And your comparative philosophy
Will not appeal to every relationship..
A parental relationship is exceptional
Once you go in you need not come out
And there is no outside for to get in.
A mystical relationship with God
Bounds you and me in divinity
And when once in there is no out.
Hold on! i know which relationship you mean
You mean the love-relationship
Oh dear dear! coming out in love
Is prohibited and never divine
And if you do
There is no true love in its base
And who calls it a relationship
When there is no love.
Yesterday I learnt a lesson
A sweet little one for a life
That i love myself first
With kindness and passion
Ah! it feels so good now
Look at me
I love me more than I
Thanks to the teacher
Who taught me so...
