Layer Of Coatings! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
Many painful memories, kept deep hidden down her heart,
Like a secret it lay deep down since years.
Many colors of happiness she painted on top of it, to make it beautiful!
Each time she gave a layer of coating,
Whenever it was trying to show the base color.
With a mask of smile, she laughed enjoying singing merrily,
And danced with others,
Never let the world know of it,
But today her coating got faded, started disappearing.
And base colors hidden behind it became visible to all.
Any way one or the other day, truth hidden was to come out.
But she think....
It was too early it came out,
As she wanted the autumns to shed, leaves for few more years,
For a few more could have left her old and grey,
It's still ok,
The time wanted to tell the stories untold.
Better late than never, to be on positive side.
It would have been buried along with her death so uncertain.
Then no one will recite the stories untold.
She has to coat again, to make her refresh.
No choice left to her.
She has to move on with same layer of coatings.
Life has tested her enough patience to all that she stood successful,
People are looking to be young, but
She is the one who would be happy when she is old and grey!
As then she can remove her coating and have a heart full laugh!
Just waiting for that shiny day!
