With In Me, With Out Me - Poem by I.P. GOPIKRISHNAN PISHARODY

The break down of manifested life
Western idea of privacy
Grandparents, become an old leaf
the fashion of old age home in town,
affording to create a social security;
thousands of younger, needs freedom
down the road, down the life
playing with their grandchildren
the new laws, unlikely to help
they remain deeply reluctant.

Stop handing over your power
to your daughter in law
love her to love you
or nest the eggs in old age homes
