A Game

Poem By Bindu Borle

Once I lost all hopes
Then someone came along
Put his arms around me, gave me faith
Told me to trust him in bad times, good times.
I sat all confused
Thinking to believe or not
So very skeptical
Weighing the pros and cons
Deciding not to doubt anyone
Life is not always a dirty game
The moment I looked up
My eyes started to search for him
I was brutally brushed aside
Emotions don’t exist
And sentiments belong to weak
I was told
You should be more business like
Curt and rude
Dry and unapproachable
There I stood
Trying to synchronize the two things
What is the value of sentiments and emotions
I said to myself
It is a part of life
The black and white…

One should lose something to win something. This is part of the game also part of life.. There is no win or loss always. It is a game of chance for any one who plays a game.
The dilema of feeling or unfeeling. In this choice I would choose to be human. Very good and revealing poetry say I.
Great! I like your style!
