Burden of Birthday

Many wished me today
I am pleased with their greetings
and the extended warmth

Couple of them went beyond
And found virtue in me

I know children play
With kites
So long as the thread remained
In their hands
Flying is interesting.

I hope I do not
End up entangled on the
Electrical wires tomorrow
With the bruised reality

Birthday is recognition
Of everyday life
Transformed into
Celebration of living
