my world, a stage

my world, a stage
All around me mere players
my father, hits to prove a disciplinarian
my mother, hits to prove her righteousness
my wife, hits her way to take sympathy 
my Son, shows sandals to my face 
my daughter, stays away by crisis
my colleagues, fond of branding me ignorant
the Society, exploits me to see their kids thrive
my mind damaged beyond recognition...
For I started believing the words of Shakespeare,
"All the World’s a stage",
Still my duties, my responsibilities I never fail, 
My objective,” being true before GOD” 
My skills I love, my career my wife,
My world is narrowing..
As long as my career is there,
I live enhancing it, I love doing that...
I could see myself improve in skills,
My love for myself gets a going…

    this is very interesting. So many people hitting!!! Loving oneself is key and I believe strongly in that last line of your poem. BTW, thanks for the prayer for my son!!

    So many ways of discipline have changed by today's standards.....but some of the old values still ring true to being the best of times. Being a perfect parent isn't possible, but making the effort, is so worth it.
