Poem and Poet…

Conceived in the darkest
Deepest corners of mind
Cultivating from a passing streak
To an impregnable thought
I implant myself
You nurture me, define me
I’m born

You relish like a proud parent
As I chuckle and glorify
They try to understand
Shower me with praises
Interpret me in various ways
I flourish..

I reach my prime
I’m young & popular
Talk of the town
They sermonise me
I’m adored
My youth sublimes..

They now remember me
I’m cited and referred
I see your wrinkles
Your shaking hands
Your worries
The slipping smile
I observe you fade..
I see you dead and gone
I become eternally perdurable..
