Brave

I want to be brave

I can’t change my heart

It’s full of fear

Fear of the new day

What will it bring?

Happy feelings

Or

Another calamity waiting to happen

On which I have no control

Except for praying

Please God, keep us safe

Fifty Years

When my children were young, one huge worry was— Will I  live till I am fifty? It haunted me. No one knows what is in store for them. I could only hope and pray. With the early death of my own mother, I didn’t want my own children growing motherless. To me it was the biggest calamity which could happen in a child’s life.

Most women in my family had died young. My aunts, maternal grandmother, mother — they didn’t survive. Thanks to God, I hanged on despite the many operations in my life.

After fifty I look back at life. It is a bonus.

Voice of Reason

What demons lurk inside you

No longer you have sanity

Creating chaos in your wake

Leaving a long trail of calamity

The voice of reason doesn’t appeal to you

You have abandoned your humanity

Misguided and lost to reasoning

Feel aghast at your insanity
