Change we all like yet distrust
A change initiated by us,
By our own loved ones
For those who grow dearer…
Forgetting former bonds
New perspectives, newer attitudes
Lead to shrinking of close ties
A slice of life drifts away
When they try to hide
What their voices betray
A heart-wrenching abyss of estrangement
Long nurtured ties weaken
As people around you seem to change
Confused, you too may falter!
The hypocrisy of endearing words
Becomes hard to swallow
When the true emotions have melted
A look of disbelief, lingers
A stoic acceptance, the only choice!
Ah! the amiable attribute of acceptance
It calms all the emotions and keeps us grounded!
