My mind is full of tension-
the ruthless waves are striking the shore
with enormous energy with an intension of destruction-
my work is not going on properly.
Yesterday there was a quarrel between my parents.
Over the phone I receive this news in the morning today.
Their anger is as hot as emerging lava.
Extra added tension makes me blind, I lose a day.
In the evening there is a clash
between me and my mother over the phone-
I never thought what I have told.
Panic-stricken, she dials me thrice,
she hardly gets a proper answer.
My blindness is as dark as the darkest cloud
or the extra-terrestrial black holes-
all lights have faded, my words too.
Tell me please, what else can I do?
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 21, 2021:
Accept the fact that they are your parents.
They will have a different viewpoint than your own, but always show them respect.
The choice is yours to make, but never treat your parents with disrespect.
Thank them for caring & being supportive.
Tell them you love them & you are sorry.
Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on June 21, 2021:
Simply say, Sorry, mom. Sorry, God.
In this life, when you deny someone an apology, you will remember it at time you beg forgiveness. -- Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut
Blessings to you
