Always And Forever

he talks of himself, says

his fight for his share
in inheritance is endless.

His brothers deny his rights
refuse to deliver.

He decries the custom

when the kartha has a daughter,

his mother- in- law being born
in such a family, he curses the system.

He bemoans, pines and fret
thinking of his lost wealth.
