She Poem by Swatimalya Chattopadhyay

She

Rating: 5.0


Nothing is impressive
Look, Gait, Smile.
Clumsy, Bizarre
In old fashioned style.

In the parlance of 'smartness'
She is not smart,
But is sincere and honest
To the core of her heart.

At times she becomes
A subject to her simplicity,
Friends, Relatives sometimes
Make her an object of mockeries.

But a different persona emanates
When she takes the mike,
She mesmerizes one and all
In her addresses to the public.

She draws inspiration
From Swamiji's ' Sisters and Brothers......'
Her every speech gets ended up
With applause and cheers.

Her natural flair for writing
Makes ebullient flow,
In her deep thoughts
She radiates with glow.

Any job assigned to her
She sees the ultimate,
Success does not elude her
As she proves herself competent.

But still when she falls behind
In the stiff rat-race
She looks for her faults
And doesn't find any trace.

A gloom overcasts her
She thinks in retrospect,
' Glamour' what she lacks most
Is the finding of her self-test.

She derives her consolation
By doing self-flatter,
Reversing the old adage
Says, ' All golds do not glitter.'

First thing dear, sincerity and honesty are strong enough to defeat any artificial attire, like glamour. Second, i dont think she consoles herself as you have mentioned in the last stanza. She repeatedly reminds herself of the eternal truth....all that glitters is not gold..... I enjoyed your poem, dear!

a lovely poem..you have brought out a 'she' personality..she is honest and talented...what she lacks is the package glamour..beauty is in the beholder's heart not even eye..'she' seems to bring wisdom and warmth to all...rat race and gold glittering are stuffs which demean human..gold is just a metal...rat race is what is spoiling humanity...as rajesh said your 'she' will not be a part of both
