Dear Father

by Indira
(Vizag, Andhra Pradesh, India)

Father said,

get up you lazy bones,

birds are out of the nest,

chirping, jumping on the branches.

Getting up late is unhealthy habit

do some exercise or play,

I never listened and slept.

Father said,

only dreaming and playing,

will take you nowhere,

Study hard and get some knowledge.

Knowledge is power

knowledge will get you connected with all.

I paused and

to play, I left.

Now, father is no more,

my life is in shambles,

my bones all grumble,

all those teachings of my father,

I remembered and wept.
