Mixed Bag

familyRaviVarma

Full
of anticipation
Admixed with
Trepidation
Trod on old
Stomping
Grounds~

Upwardly
Mobile changes
Don’t necessarily
Change persona
Realized to my
Chagrined rueful
Rumination~

People
Who took me
To the cleaners
In the past
With smooth
Viper tongues
Struck again

And knowingly
I allowed my shorn
Having detached self
In many ways
I emoted pain
That actually did not
Impact In any way

Feel sorry
For these folks
Who have an
Unabated craving
For coveting things
others possess

and
will stoop
to acquire
especially when
own pockets are
full to bursting!

Shaking my head
Amused, bemused
Confused, I came
Away ~

Five fingers are
Attached to same
Hand,
yet none
Is like the other
Life’s like that!~
*Painting is by Raja Ravi Varma*
