Nuptials Carved By Our Parents

Those lovely little precious moments
Moments we shared and treasured like two lovely doves
Doves that had fallen freshly in love
Love which had been nurtured over a long period of time
 
Time which had been kept assiduously by our bountiful parents
Parents who had been looking forward to this Nuptials
Nuptials planned since our conception in their wombs
Wombs that had born and bred other siblings
 
Siblings who had failed to grant them their heart desires
Desires they expect that we shall grant under any circumstance
Circumstances which we can no more bear and tolerate
Tolerate and bear circumstances like their constant nagging
 
Naggings which are gradually becoming a nuisance to our ears
Ears that have had to put up with these nonsensical demands
Demands which we are slowly hearkening to
To make them happy and satisfy their bitter souls
 
Souls that have not rested in many years
Years that have seen them hope to make this combination
Combination of their seeds in order to continue the family friendship bond

    I love that this is a commentary on tradition ... it provides the anthropological moment for a student. Thanks for reading my poem and for identifying. Somebody told me the cat is not a cat, so be careful, my friend. One love.

    To be put together in an arranged marriage would not be the greatest way for one to live their lives in some instances..Enjoyed reading your work..Sara
