I succumb

That juice
That chocolate
That sugary drink
With or without
The fizz
———–
That junk
———-
I want to stop
To reduce
To get healthier
———–
I won’t have more
I will refrain
————
The next day
I succumb
————-
That juicy gossip
That urge to share
Other’s weaknesses
To vent out 
My frustrations
I will refrain
————
The next day
I succumb
————
I will not beat
I will not shout
I will not scream
I’ll handle all 
With  love
———-
The next day 
I succumb
————–
I won’t be jealous
Won’t envy
Other people
Who have a career
Do so much useful
With their life
————
I’ll be quiet
I’ll be calm
I’ll suffocate 
My emotions
———–
But now
I’ve succumbed

By Jyothsna DSouza

I’m at home
With my children
With plenty of time
To read, teach, and muse

I believe if you have
The capacity
To do good
And others
They confirm
It is good
If it’s important
For many,
Not one
One must persist
To the end,
Till all one’s
Resources
Are exhausted

Man lives on hope
