Adjustment





Compromises and
Adjustment becomes obvious
When life takes grey shade


I was married now. Married to a man who was seventeen years older than me.  Father of two children.  I  didn’t know how my so called new life would be. Maybe my husband hasn’t forgotten his previous wife yet. I envisaged a hanging framed photo of his wife. What if children don’t accept me? I exhaled a labored sigh.  I will try to adjust.  Finally I looked at the photo of my parents, who left me alone many years back. Vision blurred. I knew it was my last day there.

Kathy said...

A mixture of sadness of what is past and excitement for what the future holds are embodied in this post. Moving on to a new chapter in life it often hard and you captured those emotions brilliantly.

Me said...

This was beautifully written Tarang... loved it. Could feel the pain through the words

Stormcat Poetry said...

Was the marriage by choice or arrangement. Either way I can see all those emotions weighing poignantly. I know many marriages between age mismatched couples and find them to be often very wonderful and successful so I didn't find this sad as so many of the others suggested.

Tarang Sinha said...

Thank you Kathy!

Tarang Sinha said...

Thank you so much Me!:)

Tarang Sinha said...

No woman would choose to marry a man (17 years older) who was married before with kids. It's her circumstances and she is left with no choice.

She may lead a nice life. I just tried to capture her emotions and her fears regarding this relationship...
