Stop! For a Minute, Please!

Did you take your evening medicine?

Enough! Fed up with illness that you earned
While staying away from me and your daughter.

You could have been a husband and a father
Not a man for the society!
Here eagles live
With us and look at us
With their eyes of desire.

I read them in silent hours.
What to do
With old parents and your pets?

I thought you have a life
Beyond us
Elsewhere under the blue sky
Where people chant prayers and cloudlets cheer.

At times, I just let things happen
The rose has lost its charm and glory
As rolling time smashed us
In the dark
Of your rapid sailing in the river of the mind.
