Stream of Consciousness Saturday- “apparent/a parent.”



By Neel Anil Panicker
You can rent everything but not a parent
That’s so very apparent.
As to which parent is better
Oh, isn’t that a nonsensical question?
It is much like asking
Do you like the Earth or the Sky?
A Hobson’s choice indeed!
This is not a do or die
And there’s no why.
No this or that
no wrong or right
Parents are not this and that
and these and those
With them,
For them
there are no whos and whys
No truths and lies
For if you decide to choose
One over the other
Don’t simply bother
You just stand to lose
But if you insist
And still persist
Man, go fly a kite
For you may be only one,
But for them,
You are the only one.
