It is never too late for anyone to discover his/herself in life. Discovering this talent of writing makes me feel elated...
They continue to happily interact with each other
Their days would never be complete without
Words of love, humming of love, sharing of
Beautiful photos of flowers, animals as
Theu romance and play in the ecosystems with one another
The compatible one has at long last been
Found by him. Those who thought he was
Proud will not appreciate this because
"One's enemy can never do something good"
So says the adage.
They started singing another song about him
The person he is involved with is young, he
Ought to look for somebody who is about his age
The person he is involved with is ugly, he ought
To look for a beautiful damsel.
The person he is involved with lacks experience,
He ought to look for an experienced lass; the maiden
He is involved with is poor, she will run him bankrupty soon
By her repeated demands he ought to look for
A lass who is rich, non dependant.
The persons who have been looking down on
Him and who never dreamt of him getting off
His position keeps ranting, saying many things
To put him off the lass because their meeting
Involves no one and they had thought there would be someone who will influence his being romantically involved with a maiden.
When he couldn't be weighed down by his critics
They shifted grounds and started attacking the
Naive damsel. She was painted black and called
By several derogatory names to push her to the brink
And push her away from him.
The damsel having heard many words being
Spoken about her and her involvement with the
Man was weighed down in the spirit, though deep
Within her she wants him and can do anything for
Him, but the words spoken were too much.
She tried to maintain herself, waving those words
Aside but despite her resilience, doggedness, she
Cave in and becomes subsumed by those words
Thence, she ruminated over what was happening,
After several thoughts she concluded.
Her conclusion was to leave him, for if that will
Bring him happiness and peace of mind it is better
She does that, exit his life to gain happiness for herself.
She withdraws to herself wouldn't react nor contact
Him as before.
When he sees her she keeps putting up excuses
He discovers that what she has been doing was
Unlike her, as she has changed. He called her for
Discussion, reappraising their love, there and then
She broke up in tears.
She then told him that he wants him to leave
For all she wanted for him was peace and joy
But it seems as if since she has been involved with
Him that never happened. He walks to her, embraced
Her, wiped off tears on her face.
