Changing Roles !


He ran after me.
Wanted no other,
Just only,
Me !

Then he found out,
There were some others,
Much better than,
Me !

My nature is,
To run behind.

So I left,
All that behind.

My roles,
One by one,
Were taken away !

I had,
No other,
Role to play !

What is the role,
Left for me!

Or will,
Life give me,

A New role,
To play ?

  • I enjoyed reading this poem, thanks for sharing. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about the roles we play in case you have time to have a look? Have a good day, Sam 🙂
