Mirror, mirror on the wall….

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

who is the richest of all?

Oh, it is them,

 who enjoy in their scarcity,

who share in their poverty!

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

who is the happiest of all?

Oh, it is them,

who brave all calamity,

 and laugh in adversity!

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

who is the most content of all?

Oh, it is them,

who work hard with integrity

and believe in almighty!

O! mirror, mirror,

what about me?

 Dear, oh! dear

Don’t you understand,

You are the blessed of them all!

‘coz you have nothing to fear,

or mourn the loss of a dear.

‘coz you are not tied,

with shackles of poverty,

or the blow of adversity!

But mirror, mirror

something’s amiss!

The mirror sighed,

then replied….

Oh, dear,dear..

But that is your doing!

For you yourself string,

a web of worry!

Have a little more faith..

Life would be bliss!!


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
