Between

my own

and extended kith

I oscillate

To Deftly  load balance

 

On

Quickening

that event,long anticipated

I jubilate

To Eventually mature

 

 

For

The soulmate  to grow

I giveup and bolster

I masquerade

To  Completely transform

  

To

The glands that overrule

And govern my will

I burst

To  Quietly  submit

 

Although

my teen, gets curled up, close and tight

I relate

To Reminiscently recollect

 

The

“in  phenomenon” 

I only can relate

To Celebrate

To Eternally Celebrate

 

Me  ??!!

A  Phenomenon in me. .

    A beauty indeed
    rather a phenomenal poem difficult
    to read again & again
    look up meaning of uncommon words
    then in front of you opens a panorama of thoughts
    of beautiful nuances, everyone elegantly delights

    Liked the poem immensely
    Kudos

    Kanchana,
    well a definite style in verses and poem.
    Style-wise I would suggest dispensing with almost all punctuation, especially as you are using capital letters internally in lines.
    In the first verse if family is intended – kin rather than kith is correct.
    Below I have made minor changes to punctuation and layout.
    Have a look and see what you think?

    There is feeling of confidence rising from the lines through the poem. Stages, areas of life thought on frankly, as they are described. Yet there seems a hint of surprise at the realization of self’s capacity.
    These quotes stand out for me:
    “I oscillate;
    To Deftly load balance.”
    “I masquerade”
    “To Eternally Celebrate;”
    “On
    Quickening”

    Kanchana,
    Thought process is a bit too abstract.
    I could only conjecture that each living being is a miracle by itself.
    Kusum

    Realization of the self comes here so elegantly. Marvelous!
