Circus Of My Life

Circus Of My Life

1 min 438 1 min 438

A dainty damsel with a thousand dreams

I step into realm unknown unseen

Life is a circus I had heard from chums

Joyous exciting entertainment fun


I couldn't fathom what lay in store

Till I left my paternal shore

Honeymoon time though brief is sweet

Life, a lullaby, a chirp, a tweet


Euphoria ends fade away romances

Circus of life duly commences

Caged confined clipped and reined

My carefree soul is erased and retrained


The roaring tiger silenced and tamed

The soaring kites whipped and chained

My maiden wantonness bound in restriction

My chirping spirit muted in submission


Behind the facade of paints and masks

Each day is a farce an elephantine cross

With more than three shifts without grouse

I juggle I scamper to ensure a full house


At beck and call of all those matters

I witness my dreams my hopes shatter

My destiny is to be an abiding partner

Controlled by a chauvinistic ringmaster


Nevertheless.....

In the midst of life's rigor and monotony

Acrobatics of my kids please my anatomy

And then........


The curtain of night falls I retire till morn

To play my shifts to again perform

With spells of gaiety with reams of strife

I am a survivor of a circus called life
