The Uncommitted - Poem by NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

(End of Term Report)

She had alway’s had Life served up to her on a silver platter. So, when she married the man of her choice - she expected no hitch, no hiccup whatever - only, happy ever after.

Alas. Life isn’t like that.
When husband and wife stumbled at the very first hurdle, she didn’t bother to discover what had gone wrong and how it could be put right. I thought, she was made of sterner stuff, and would stay the course. She did not.

Concluding report: A total lack of commitment. As though, marriage is something frivolous.
