Sixty Years Memories

A thought that keeps awake all through.

Living long has its own fall backs 

 that too after sixty it s a tedium

 living most of the time alone 

while the husband and wife keep staring 

there arises  a vacuum  very emphatic

and if the man  falls sick die before sixty

 the wife tends the husband

 but never could she expect that 

 if she gets ill and lies in bed.

 That being the untold verdict

 of the community  at large 

 where the male chauvinism

reigns supreme and great 

 however exhausted she be

 has  look after the chores

Getting away from this earthly being

very much before you turn sixty

 seems appropriate and wonderful

 as you are saved from illness

 and the much condemned loneliness

 I can hear the advice of many

bidding  to get involved in service 

 which again needs a healthy frame

 and a stamina sane  

which again leads to the vicious .

Die before you turn  sixty  or even ahead

as you would not be a burden to anyone

 the least to yourself.
