Opportunistic Parasites

Written by Dr Swati A Gadgil

When posed with a challenge
that seems enormous
will I be dauntless
or barefaced raucous,
Would I lean back
on a relation snapped
or pamper my ego
and remain capped,
being opportunistic
selfish and double faced
does it come so easy
to some, when drained,
piling on to friends
in hour of need
whom they had discarded
pulling out like weed,
such is the breed
to be wary of
who fleece you unconcealed
trust and faith tearing off,
never be misled
choose your friend
who walks with you
well until the end,
neither manipulative
nor judgemental
but accomodative
and regimental,
God bless me with wisdom
self respect and fear
fear of destiny and capitalism
and epiphytes far and near,
when posed with a challenge
and enormous it seems
let me remain impregnable
Haunted with dreams ….
dauntless with whims……

    The poet sets out with questions and ends up with answers . It is truly said that a well framed question usually carries within itself its own answer
