Being Lazy: A Poem About Those Numbing Day

Poem: Being Lazy — On weekdays, I wake up to questioning eyes, melancholic eyes and eyes full of despair, with the desire to do nothing but sleep and wander in dreams.

On weekdays, I wake up

to questioning eyes, melancholic eyes and eyes full of despair,

with the desire to do nothing but sleep and wander in dreams,

Father bears an angry expression,

Mother, a defensive look.

The others just too derisive,

And me all consuming to do nothing.

A yawn here, a yawn there,

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

lazy ache in the body,

with little numbness in the head.

No one speaks to me,

anger so intense in their hearts.

But I swim in my bliss.

Ah! It’s so beautiful with a cup of tea in my hand,

while I half open my eyes and feel the earthy smell that pervades the house

I shut my self when I see the time, the date and years going by…

I close my reasoning,

take a deep breath and lay myself down

on a sun-soaked couch…

The bliss in my heart and mind, so serene and unseen.
