a voice of HR

Human relations...
emotions kept on check.
Geared with a smile
ready for the day's work..

Been with my hire
all those years,
welcomed him aboard
helped him every step.

Lifted his spirits,
when he was down.
Warned him ahead
on the signal of the storm.

All said and done
my heart still hurts.
A tired smile
playing on my lips.

My job done.
His just begun.
Has to face his family
pink slip in hand.

His kid running to him
for the usual kiss and hug.
Shocked when he was thrust aside,
With no warm smile or a tug.

His drunken state
a witness for his pain
but child too young,
to understand the strain.

Human relations...
emotions kept on check.
Geared with a smile
ready for the day's work..


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google

I agree with Cognizance. There is a personal touch to this one like quite a few other poems of yours which makes it a good read. And, it makes one quite concerned too.

I could visualise the entire scene in me mind. HR is after all a touch job. You've provided us here a more appropriate job description.

Keep writing!!!

Thank you Sundar..my forte is always PR... Now we finally met, you would have understood that. I love talking to people and more than talking, I love listening to them. Faces and their thoughts interests me..

I never keep it at that level, will get attached to people very easily and it becomes difficult eventually in certain cases. I am a good HR, but I should leave my heart at home.

"Kids" is about all about Ani :)

Thank you AJ.

Yes, almost all my poems has the personal touch.

Once a person finish reading my blog, I think he/she will know me better than me.

At times it's boring to write about oneself, that's the reason why i am addicted to your blog. I get to read lines on different topics with different views.

May be next time I will use this poem as a JD, when we have an opening for HR :D

While reading most of your pieces, it becomes quite evident that they are coming through a lady because of all the emotional quotient attached to them and i tell you what i love this thing immensely. Great work!!

This one particularly - so true, more than half of the population of this planet, at this instance, can associate with the pain here..

Lovely and very true.

At one, I learnt crawling was fun. At forty one, I still feel crawling is fun #blamemykneesnotme
