The Expanding Gulf

High expectations are pouring gulfs in relations,
Closely-knit hearts are panting amidst brawls.
Despair is tiptoeing in families & friends,
And expressions are apparently to be blamed.
The dubious minds are squirreling self-centeredness,
And beautiful woven bonds are getting on palisade.
Why every being is running?
Running in unpredictable race of uncertainties?
Any rung of the ladder can be the end,
Then why do people offend?
Genuineness & candor,
These are things nobody wants to handle!
Pursed lips in the times of raising a voice,
And the shrieking throats in moments of silence are adding up to the gulfs.
