We don't have time to rectify our errors. 
But plenty when it comes to finding fault with others. 
We are only concerned with our outward appearance in our mirrors. 
Blessed is the soul of our mothers. 
( Because mothers as well as fathers don't judge their children on their physical appearance). 

We, as their children, don't have time to talk to our parents. 
But shed a few crocodile tears after their death. 
There's no use for regrets and laments. 
And a guilty conscience to prick until our last breath. 

We don't have time to spend with our children. 
We are busy making money. 
And they crave our affection often. 
But we leave them under the care of a nanny. 

We have enough time to watch Netflix. 
Or post our statuses online.
But there's no time for the broken relations to fix. 
We carry on with our respective lives as if everything is fine. 

We don't have time to share someone's pain. 
But enough to share our sorry tales. 
We tend to look at them with disdain.
Selfishness is the disease that prevails. 

We have ample time at our disposal. 
It depends on how we decide to spend. 
Let's work on a time proposal. 
And divide it equally between mobile, family, and friends. 

Thank you so much for taking your precious to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. Very true Aparna. Each word you said is true. In this world of show off, we are just doing all this and always cribbing for time crunch. Hope someone will learn something from this write-up.

  3. that’s so true. It’s actually sad how little time we spend on the things that count and how much on the things that doesn’t really matter all that much. I loved it, because it speaks to the heart.

  4. WOW Aparna, this is a powerful and telling delivery of how we spend our time and what we so often miss when we don’t devote our time as we should. Beautiful and thought-provoking poem my dear friend. You make us stop and recalibrate our thinking and commitment. Sending you lots of love, hugs and smooches. Make the rest of your evening a relaxing one, and a time for recharging. πŸ₯°πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ₯³πŸ’‹πŸ˜ŠπŸ’žπŸ₯‚

  5. When I had a home and family, I dressed up as much for them and was as polite and considerate to them as anywhere outside the home. I, too, think we have our priorities backward. Never should we leave for a mere social engagement in the middle of a discussion on important things, painting fake smiles on our faces for people who shouldn’t matter to us nearly as much as the one we ought to have stayed home and worked it out with, right?


  6. Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Dear Aparna it’s an amazing poem. So powerful, inspiring, a big truth.
    Youa are a wonderful writer, feels how much you love writing, thank’s for share dear friend.
    Keep well and be happy! You deserve all the best!
