my thoughts through poems

To a man from a Woman

My Dear Man
God created me to be your Woman
To be respected by you was his plan
But for your benefit you used our whole clan
You told us that we are here to serve
There is no privileges that we deserve
You laughed at our plight
Gave us no respite
We mustered the strength and had the will
to get out of the mundane routine drill
Our lost respect we wanted to gain
But all we got from you was pain
All our efforts seem to go in drain
Our Dear man have some heart
In Society, give us the space to play our part
All we want is a chance
To happily live sing and dance
Create a society without fear
so that I don't need to worry about what I wear
We never questioned you about your ways
Why do you want to spoil our days
So my dear man. Please
Lets us together live in harmony and peace

To Mom from Son

My Dear sweet Mom

You were the one I got my life from

For you I was the only toy

My smile gave you a lot of joy

For me you suffered a lot of pain

Never thought of any profit or gain

You always gave never asked

In my glory you always basked

The only word you know was sacrifice

For my growth you could pay any price

You were always there to cover my back

Took out time to clean my dirty rack

You dedicated your life for me

So that I could live my life carefree

Now is the time for you to take rest

So that I give you a life that is the best

Let us now reverse our role

Let your happiness be my goal

Please for once let me be the one

Who makes sure that you have all the fun

You are the best I know it MOM

Its time for me to prove, I am your worthy Son.

Dear Daddy

I came to the world because of you

You deserve a lot of respect and it is still due

Whatever you did for me felt nothing new

In return what I gave you was far and few

You always told me son I love you

But I never cared to apologize even when I hurt you

You were near me even before I needed you

When you wanted me I had no clue

For my growth you became the stepping stone

And very easily I left you alone

You listened to me when my talks made no sense

I termed your discussions as pointless and of no essence

You sacrificed your new dress for my costly toy

I didn't care to see what will give you happiness and joy

Before I could fall you gave me your hand

But when you fell I didn't understand

Now that you are gone and it is too late

I wish we could go out for one last date

To hold your hand and hug you

And say” Dad I love you”
