A pampered child as I had been
Always loved, cuddled and respected
Due to the radiance and brilliance
Behoving my tender and soft face
Swelled up by my parents' ego
Fuelled by their baseless boasting.
Calm but isolated in the group
Ever lost in my own thoughts
Chalking out plans for sustaining
Myself and the family in cut-throat world.
Once out of college I took to teaching
The small kids blind to the fire
Of hunger and starvation devouring
The poor families of the inactive, Somehow killing their life in the village.
The wedding garland round my neck,
Lowered my head and self esteem
Only to see the affairs of my own
Neglecting the plight of my parents.
I am now orphaned by none but My parents for reasons still unknown.
