The poem I am submitting was written by me a few years back, having been a teacher all my life, I have come across many types of parents, otherwise nice people, but having no time for their families, kids and even themselves.
I penned this one, after one of my best student could not get her report card signed by her parents even after 10 days ..

RAINBOWS OF LIFE..

People are busy….
people are very busy………..
they work round the clock……
trying to meet …..

deadlines…………

why the ..rush…?
if the lines are already
dead..

they rush …. and they
rush…
no time for near and dear ones’
covering up their ..
rudeness….

under the cloak of…

PROFESSIONALISM…….

they…. hear…. but don’t … listen…….
they…. see…..but don’t ….. watch……..
they …talk…but don’t…. speak…….
they…. touch……. but don’t …. feel…..
they…. eat ….. but don’t ……. savour……
look around… wait for a … while……

look at your … child………

waiting….
for a … hug…..
doesn’t it tug at…… your,

heartstrings..??

what are you trying to ….
achieve ?
the best things in life are.free of cost..
you are earning …..so much…

what are you ..gaining ?

because….
you are .. losing out on ..
a………… LOT…………
