As you are now so once were we

We are all surrounded by a particular bunch of people who care about us more than anyone possibly can . Family, relatives, teachers, oldsters and several nameless faces. One thing that they  constantly  try is to relate and connect to you and your alleged naïve life. They constantly feed you with their own specialized and exclusive opinions. As they are physically and intellectually beyond you sometimes things may go little awry. They cite examples, narratives, stories and target you with rich and varied armada of  experience they have gathered in time gone by. There's nothing wrong in it... I think it's the best thing that can happen to a person. But this road of mutual sharing and understanding  is very tricky in nature and  full of twists, turns and bumps and pits.. There are times when we find ourselves in opposite camps.
"Family's incessant love and likeness has often a deep sadness in it. Nature, that great tragic dramatist, knits us together by bone and muscle, and divides us by the subtler web of our brains; blends yearning and repulsion; and ties us by our heart-strings to the beings that jar us at every movement."
~George Eliot

You speak and listen
about everything, everyday
incessant loops of rebukes
approvals, we try and connect
in all possible ways
we never say or talk about

the slight diversion
in your version and mine
that palpable variance
which breathes along semantics
and deductions we apply

adduce evidences we witness
but compensate for in due time
like those barely visible
overlapped layers of rainbows
your persuasion runs over mine

leavings its imprints
somewhere along the fringes
but transmuting in to mine
times may arise
when we stand across
I might do something you oppose

methods might differ
so are some choices I may make
you schooled me well
made me a cultured youth
there are nibbles of you
in every step I take

You ain't wrong, neither am I
issues we jiggle and pry
you say,
you are now once were we                                                  
I say, just for a change
don't think much and don't worry.


  1. Wow this was epic and beautiful. You're very talented!

  2. Very well spun under your sun and yeah much we will find from others and disagree too, each should be allowed a voice in our great big zoo.

  3. nice...we can learn so much from each other...some things we agree with and others may not but i like your rainbow image...the overlapping layers and it makes the world so much more diverse and colorful

  4. Very true. Another masterpiece from you.

  5. nice...very cool picture with this as well...and its cool to sit and talk...i love hearing other peoples stories....we are not that much different but we each bring our own flavor to the soup...smiles.

  6. Advice is right but still doing right is advisable.

  7. You ain't wrong, neither am I....nice.

  8. life might be meaningless if we are not in such a circle that cares and loves us and simultaneously we play our part to continue this chain action...
    give n take society in a way...but thats for the good

  9. Different paths hopefully leading to same goal! Nice one Jyoti:)

  10. You have understand the importance of chain bounded with us...

    1. My comment came twice.So the deletion.

  12. To put it in simpler term this is what we know as the 'generation gap"

  13. Beautiful....Every individual colour though different creates a picture perfect of life. Frames can be different, shapes can be different.

    Nice one Jyoti,..

  14. Listening is a wonderful thing one could and should do and we learn number of thing by doing so. Everyone get to think individual after certain point in life but until then what our elders and parents says had been followed. They might be right on their thought always, but we can’t appreciate or accept everything quite.

    You dropped it well in your poem! Truly appreciate

  15. We must accept that we all draw our own growth graph and we have to make our mistakes to be a better person. Profound work yet again.

  16. There are variances in our thinking but the idea of finding a solution should bother our conscience. Nicely Jyoti!
