MOTHER TO HER DAUGHTER
ON VALENTINE’S DAY IN INDIA…..
 
Insist not,
My LOVE !
 
Insist not on going alone there ;
Your fortified land
Precious treasures
May be explored
And plundered forcibly ;
The flesh mongers
Hungrier than wolves and hyenas
Waiting for opportunity only.
 
Insist not on playing your passion ;
Not your age it is
To make that fun ;
Just wait and have patience ;
Be sensible and rational ;
Feelings and emotions aren’t enough :
Let the bud first take its full form .
 
Insist not on meeting your friends
0utside home :
Vultures may snatch your tender bosom
May make you bleed and go to trauma .
 
Remember, dear !
You’re growing up …
Stay away from cheats good at
Betraying innocence..
Take the best care of you..
No longer child you’re
Do use your common sense.
 
Too much acquintances
May ruin you;
Remember…
Relationship is not a deal .
 
At this age feet slip
Adolescents go wayward
And get spoiled
To lament for ever
And
When they realize the truth
The big nothingness they find
In this game .
 
You are winged now;
Advice and warnings seem rude
And taste bitter to you…
Want to move here and there everywhere
At your sweet will and whim .
 
Infatuation it’s ,
Not love ; remember , dear !
I can’t let you go there alone ;
 
Insist not on flying higher
Like a free bird
Freedom is not always for
One’s good .
 
Am always at your service ;
Misunderstand me not,
Protector I’m ;
In love with your grace…..
Your safety and dignity
My priority….., nothing else.
