The Uninvited Guest!

Silently, stealthily, you come,

Not a knock on the door,

Not even a warning call,

You walk right in…


Turning a deaf ear to our requests,

Turning a blind eye to our feelings,

Catching us off-guard…

Leaving us dumbfounded,


You ask, “if I called would you be prepared?”

You ask, “is there  ever a perfect time?”

You ask, if we would ever welcome you?

You know the answer, “NEVER!”


Do you wonder, why we avoid you,

Do you wonder why we mistrust you,

Has nobody ever told you?

Does it really matter to you or You just don’t care?


‘Coz YOU  come with a hidden agenda…

‘Coz YOU take away what is ours…

‘Coz YOU walk away leaving us in tears…

And ‘coz YOU bring to reality our worst fears…


If you were fair, WE wouldn’t mind,

If you took away the undeserving, WE would be kind,

But YOU take it all,

And leave us feeling not in control and so small…


No formula decoded to figure out your calculation,

No theory,  hypothesis or  justification,

We, the Human Race, Supreme and Strong,

Second to YOU– who comes uninvited, to prove Us wrong…
