live dream achieve

Standard

go, leave

make a life for yourself

live dream achieve

say those words to the world

thanking us

your parents …

…visit the home

when we are old or gone

tell all

we meant the world to you

but

no one will know

how each minute of our lives

we missed

you being with us

our children

Standard

growing up

they

never leave our side

and

we have no time

for ourselves

until

one day

they go away

to make their own lives

and we

have all the unwanted time

in the world

her avatar

Standard

a simple metal pendant

faded red lips

sun tanned skin

old sari

chipped nails

discoloured nail paint

threadbare shawl

but those eyes

looking around

for someone

who would

like her

in that avatar

Silhouettes

Standard

I repeatedly

Look into the stained mirror

Above

The sink

At my workplace

And

Into the car rear view mirror

Into

The sunglasses

My daughter wears

Reflections

Caught in the

Shop windows

But

I see

What I am

An ageing woman

Whose youth

Is

Now dwindling

And

The silhouettes

Too

Don’t favour her

Anymore
