Each and every time

P.C :- Reena’s Exploration Challenge.

Of companionship,

Of hurt,

Of hunger,

Of territorial brawls,

The birds sing a song,

I pretend to understand their lyrics,

Each and every time,

Of sharing,

Of weather changes,

Of reliability,

Of longevity,

The trees rustle up in unison,

I pretend to understand their music,

Each and every time,

Of a tear’s worth,

Of fear’s fury,

Of their silent pain,

Of uncountable miseries,

An unknown person’s untold concern,

I pretend to understand,

Each and every time,

I could only hear the loud noise,

I could only see the anger,

I cared less for their pain,

I shrugged past their concerns,

My kith and kin’s pain,

I discounted as an endless ramble,

Each and every time.

115 words.

P.S : – This poem is written on a basis that we often take our loved ones for granted. Overriding their emotions, concerns we often don’t listen to them but make assumptions.

  1. If it reflects badly on me, it is a sham. If it supports my stand in some way, I support with full vigor, inwardly knowing that they are not so right.

    It is ultimately about me, not them.
