The first generation chit chat

412201DB-02D8-42E3-B3D2-8631940869C7

Why

are you always insisting on Hindi

And when will you stop wearing the red bindi

I hate it when dad’s stories are only about the past

Why

want trauma, want trauma, of transition to last

Why do we stay marinated in perseveration techniques

And when will you start integrating without fatigue

I feel sad when you are distracted by yearning

Why

then did you tell, did you tell me, enjoy the learning

Why should you expect me to carry your weight

And when will you address the avoidance of fate

I tend to pull away when your face twists, feet stumble

Why

not heal, not heal, signature kheer with apple crumble

Why only call me out on my angst or anger

And when with you stop recreating an unreal candor

I remember when we started out at first, with courage

Why 

don’t you hear, don’t you hear, the conundrum of fear

 

And why don’t we have a conversation, you and I

Let’s meet for coffee today, you and I

And why don’t we have a conversation, you and I

One thought on “The first generation chit chat

  1. True reflection of reaction of the present generation
    But then the old generation suffers from unrealistic expectations that this generation should carry their
    Weight like they carried their old parents weight ungrudginly most often
    But this generation is right to think as to why shoulld listen to their gloomy and sad stories
    Excellent conveys lot both to this and old generation
    Let them have a lively and scintillating chit chat
