The M-word

Posted on Updated on

I am a mere observer
Others lives I record and see
What this  one-word institution
“Marriage” is meant to be

Some marry in a hurry
Like there will be – no other chance
Soon, neither gives the other
As much as a second glance

Some marry for money
It seems to be a practical choice
But then, its not all honey
Often, their thoughts have no voice

Many marry under pressure
With people dictating- what they SHOULD do
And when the big day is over
On their own, the partners
hardly have a clue

Some marry their friends
And discover a new avatar
Men – scream, Women – cold war
Well,That’s how this relation ends

Some marry for security
And standing in the “society”
Unless blessed with serious conviction
Their life fades into obscurity

Some try their luck at ” _____ . com ”
Firmly believing in technology
While chatting, fiance(e)s are in full form
And later a mismatch in psychology

Some marry for fame
And try desperately to fit in
Very few survive
The others, just can’t seem to win

Some just feel alone
They need to get themselves a spouse
The difference is similar to –
Creating a home
And just buying a house

Yet, there are those who strive
Unassuming, sometimes unglamorous to the eye
This small fraction
shares their strategy, which is
No Expectation.

To keep it going, they say
there are a few many things
you have to do,
If not –
Kiss peace of mind – Adieu!!!
