In this poem, the poet shows how life plights cause us change the way we never expected.


 

This is a long beard

Before no long mustache I grew

Shaving it short, I used to do

Today, it is this long I know

 

This is a long beard

No more time for shaving

Thoughts surface my mind

Maybe this is lethargy

 

This is a long beard

Everything we experience

God knows the reasons

Monday and Sunday are days

 

They are part of the week

They keep the people busy

Not with the same need

This is a long beard

 

A long mustache has developed

Some time it has taken to grow

Effects always follow causes

And now this is a long beard
