Sorry, I am Busy

  Sorry, I am busy
My friend,
Cannot take your call
Sorry
“I am busy”

Cannot you see?
The baggage of life
On my head
Stuffed with
Duties and responsibilities
Please read “stones and pits”
Makes me wobble
While I walk,
Cannot talk to you
And love you
Sorry, I am busy

Do you know?
Like me
My mom and dad
Were busy
Carrying my load and family
Now they count their days
In the old age confines
Cannot meet them
Talk to them
Sorry, I am busy

While I work
And hear the clock
Ticking away
Feel the piercing fear of
Impending woes
Buddy,
“Termination, demotion and beggary”
waltz like ghosts
Before me,
Cannot take your call
Sorry, I am busy

Oh, not again,
No calls please,
Neither any message
Dwindling in the grinds of time
Getting shifted to the void 
forever
A bed that time has designed for me
I shall sleep forever there
That’s my grave
Oh dear,
I cannot meet you
Cannot talk to you
“Sorry, I am Busy”
