Arranged Marriage

Arranged Marriage long poem

Photo by NJ..

I was on a lookout
for a dame, to be as bright
as sunshine, for tying a knot and
to enjoy the life to the brim

Alliance for the marriage came in plenty

Her first appearance made me so happy
Her innocent but charming looks was so sexy
I straight away decided to hook her and marry

Eye to Eye meet, lip to lip smile and tongue to
tongue talk ensured that we two would become one
with an understanding that she won and me done

Life was so rosy in the beginning that we were
transported straight to the heaven to lead a fairy
tale of married life

As we became closer and closer, we started to agree
to disagree more and more on each and every issue

In this condition of chaos we did not realize we had
become parents to two beautiful kids

The kids grew up and raised their stature to
Himalayan heights while
we the parents fought down in shame to reach the
bottom of the sea

We had to vacate the heaven for the noise we
created and we crashed onto the earth with fist
cuffs and hair pulling.

At the evening of our life we
realized we are not made for each other though’ we
know our kids are made for one another

Though the Arranged marriage for them was a disaster
their union resulted in producing two lovely offsprings
who were so attached and united with each other that
the two could sail the family through

A great read, I often wondered about the arranged marriage—I had come to the conclusion if it is
your culture then love would grow slowly, and when love grows so does the attraction.
I see maybe it is the same the world over we outgrow each other.

Nice poem, in an arranged marriage the love takes time to set in, two unknown persons brought together and slowly they create a heaven, it is for natural not to agree and disagree with each other whether love marriage or arranged marriage but yes love is the essence of a successful married life and even in the disagreement one could locate the agreement…….thats the beauty of marriage………nice poem……liked every bit of it
