Abandoned daughter (poetry)

I hardly weigh 10 pounds

Still I’m like a burden for some.

Unlike other kids, I’m not loved

I got abandoned

Along with my mother

By my so-called father,

For whom marriage was just a game,

Least he had any shame.

.

I feel mother is luckier than me,

Many are ready to accept her,

Still she hold a charm in her,

People say, she’s of some use.

.

But I became a stone in her path,

To get a new light in her life.

Though I can’t walk

And hardly can talk.

.

Some men don’t want a ready-made daughter,

For them, their genetic share matters.

Some men fear about expenses.

I didn’t even got all my milky teeth

I feed on milk, little oxygen I breath.

.

Someday mom may get married again,

Aunties won’t let her live in pain.

After which, I’ll be totally alone,

My right to be called as her daughter will be gone.

Her new husband may not want a ready-made daughter,

My story will be shared in parties with hidden laughter.

After all, I’m an abandoned daughter,

No one wants me, because genetic share matters..

Written with a heavy heart..

Can I still be called patriot?

O’ lord,

You created a huge piece of land,

As a gift for mankind..

Decorated with ribbons

Of five huge oceans,

We draw few lines

And kept extending it..

Dividing your beautiful gift

Nations we split..

We are taught to love

Only our part of land

Where we born..

O’ lord,

Is this why you created earth?

To draw lines

And fight wars?

Can’t we love the total gift?

And still be called patriot?

I love my country and I don’t need to prove this.. I feel loving your country is an obvious emotion, you don’t need to develop it..

Sometimes I feel either we are Indian, American, European.. We should be Earthian first..

Thank you for reading..

Wedding anniversary.. (poetry)

Pain pierced me, When I wrote the

date,

Something inside me began to ate…

I did not actually forgot,

It’s the day I celebrated a lot…

It’s the day, my dad married a fairy,

People call it their wedding anniversary…

To give a surprise to mom and dad,

How crazy fights, we siblings had..

I remember how we saved money,

Forbidding some candies of orange and honey…

When we looked at the candles on cake,

We wished their bond to never shake..

Today I can’t wish a happy anniversary,

To that lonely sweet fairy…

Her prince had been taken away,

Divine separation made her alone stay…

I wish their reunion in heaven,

Above all the skies seven…

May they celebrate million anniversaries,

In the land of no separation and worries…

My dear arrived.. (poetry)

I started loving my city more,

Someone came back, far from seven shores..

It seems the scent of his feet brought springs,

The soil of my town had cracked rings..

At moments, I’m dancing along with cool breeze,

In the very next, thoughts made me freeze…

Our watches showing time same,

I’m behaving so senseless, whom to blame..?

The sand should stop falling in the hour glass,

I don’t want this time to ever pass…

People ask me the reason for my smiles,

How can I tell, someone is back from thousand miles…!

Rainbow of hope..( Etheree)

Fate,

May be,

One who drag

Darkness endless,

In my joyful world..

Courage is what I got,

To embrace those darker shades,

Once being reason for my nightmares..

Soon the rainbow of hope will arise,

Rain can’t stay in eyes, even for a while..

Best friends

Before sunset,

Every end of sky painting

Shades of crimson,

Trading colors with heaven…

.

Friendly rays of setting sun,

Radiating their faces,

Igniting togetherness..

Endless talks along with chirping birds

Nourishing their bond..

Dance of giggling lips,

Scintillating their souls…

This is also acrostic poem.. (The first letter of each verse forms the title)..

Love you mom

Love, a word, the meaning you are

Out of the blue, a magical star..

Vain is my life, without you

Each day your affection grew..

.

Yet, at times I took you for granted

On my hard days, you never deserted

Umbrella you were, when sorrows fell wholehearted..

.

Mystical creature you are, O’ mother!

Oscillates our lives around each other,

Mom, your care can’t match with any other!

Some stories meant to live in poetry…

I wanted to be with you,

You went miles away..

It’s not impossible to talk,

But, you choose to stay away..

For sure, it’s not ego,

I must let you go..

I’ll never tell, songs reminds me of you,

Nostalgic memories celebrates being with you,

Eyes sketch your faded image,

Heart debates over it to be love or a mirage..

Hands crave to hold you again,

Our bond you almost tried to slain…

Let love rest in cemetery,

Some stories meant to live in poetry…

I wrote this poem when I was missing my friend, Shadan tuba…

I don’t have any other option to communicate with her.. May be she’ll read this someday…

I’m actually very angry with her but it’s okay.. We can’t force anyone to stay with us..

(Good luck girl.. Be happy..!)

Winter winds

The way winter breaks the cells apart,

Drawing lines on skin making art,

It’s not the craft which brings smile,

But, resembles the trench

You gave to my heart,

Quite a long back,

Still it aches…

It’s an

Art..!

Thank you..

I forgot me, in you..! (Nonet)

In the ocean of my waving thoughts,

Sails a ship searching your whereabouts,

Dancing up and down across shores,

Not letting me do chores,

For being so silly,

Time laughs at me…

I forgot

Me, in

You…!
