The Paining Age - Poem by lalitha iyer

It pains
to age
not in body
but in mind

when the lovely dawn
nomore cheers me
when my fragile limbs
aches more at morn

when the splashing wetness
make me fear of fevers
when the dashing kids
kill me with painful cramps

when my mind is done
I am done
no more brains
but only chains

when the world sings
I am afraid of noise
when the world dances
I am hating actions

When the food I eat
poisons me
when the hope ends up
into nothing but only nothing.

    Quite an interesting observation. At times, the mirror is not that good a friend. (Report) Reply
