There lived a beautiful, chubby teen girl,
Unaware of worldly matter,
Just lived a happy go lucky life with siblings,
With enormous dreams to fulfil & pursue.
Destiny had it on family,
Sudden death of father realtered their life,
Both siblings were devastated.
Despite being brought up in typical conservative society,
Thought of changing the terms prevailing globally.
Mother was the only tree to look after the household.
Being an elder one, decided to be at least be the branch,
As the younger brother was yet studying.
Branch decided to expand along with studies,
Started with part time & gradually full-time job.
Must have faced hurdles, liked someone too,
Almost sacrificed all just to fulfil necessity of family.
Today, just met her at family function,
Appeared she has accepted facts of life.
Still carrying her infectious smile,
Still carrying inspiring thoughts on life as spiritual.
Her glorious charm is now bit faded with age,
Her smile appears contagious but is void at times.
Who is aware of secret behind this faded beauty?
Who is aware of secret behind this captivating smile?
Who is aware of secret behind this courageous woman?
The strong-willed woman whom we would all admire…
Its only her wrinkles, who knows it all…
