Daily Prompt : Grasp

In response to prompt   :  Grasp

I was twelve when my father died. It was difficult for me to comprehend the meaning of death.

For several years I firmly believed my Dad will come back. My younger siblings and I found it hard to accept that we’d never see our Dad again.

Some things in life is not easy to grasp, such as death!

Deception by R.Tagore, translated by Ranu

Lest you feel I may understand you easily    is this why you  pretend to be what you are not__

outwardly you are a picture of happiness             inside you  are filled with tears.

I understand dear,I understand                            this deception

whatever you want to express                               you refrain from saying.

Fearing that I may grasp you with ease                  you  avoid giving me any clue___

lest I try to include you in a group                             you act indifferent and unfriendly.

I know dear, I know dear                                             your deceptive trick___

the path you would like to take                                   you do not.

You want much more than everyone,                        is this the reason why you leave____

you avoid showing disrespect        is this why you pretend to play and immerse your beggar’s bag?

I fathom,I fathom your                                                                 pretense___

What satisfied everyone                                                                failed to satisfy you.
