I shall stay till end

When we enter our adulthood we make friends and with a few of them we might have a relationship also and with one of them it may culminate in a serious one which might become a relationship for the whole life by accepting the person as our life partner. But how to find out the inner person in him or her? That is the quest undertaken in this poem. Only after knowing the person fully it makes sense to go for a life time relationship because life time relationship is a commitment between two people.

Poetry type

I have tried to compose this poem in a rythmic form and first line of each of the stanza is only three words. Further, no line goes beyond five words. I will be happy to call this a three-five rythmic poetry if my fellow poets accept the nomenclature.


I shall stay till end

The outer beauty,
So attractive and appealing.
The appearances,
So stylish and appeasing.

Like a thing,
Packed in golden foils.
Like a thing,
Wrapped in shining oils.

Shall I stay,
Or just like that leave.
Without exploring,
What lies beneath.

Choice is mine,
But one should take chance.
You can't judge it,
In a single glance.

Let me delve,
Deeper in my friend.
If it is really worth,
I shall stay till end.
