"Your blood relatives, except your parents, are your blood relatives ONLY if you accept them. Your blood relatives do not have to come only by blood relations but they can be anyone, even a stranger, who are ready to sacrifice their blood for you. Every Earthling is your relative but only the ones you accept are your blood relatives."
-Afra- (My own quote)


Sad Dad walked his girl
She had tears of glee and glum
Her hand changed her life

The charming white dress 
showed the peace in the girl's mind
Her hair was no mess

Guy was excited
Which made the Dad so frightened
But he had no choice

Dad's glad for his girl
And her brand new life ahead
He wore a slight smile

The Guy's big sisters
Had planned a prank to trick them
But could not do so

The learned tester came
Looked at the Girl and the Guy
And chanted his words

Then, came out a juice,
then hugs, talks and rushes 
Soon they headed out

A fancy car arrived
Went in the girl and the guy
life is shining new


The author's comments:

My name is Afra. I was born on the 29th of December. I am a Sri Lankan currently residing in Kandy, Sri Lanka. I dedicate my poem to My Dad, Mom, Ameer Uncle, Paji Aunty, my Granny Janufa Reyal, Khaniz Umma, Soodha Umma, Awrah, Amdhi, Aara, Sathvika and My late Grandpa Rahmath Appa. If they weren't there, my poem won't be here. And I also dedicate this to all the readers of Teen Ink. 

I chose to write about marriage because due to Covid, we are not able to attend marriage ceremonies. In a marriage, all relatives get together and have an interaction which never happens everyday. I really miss those good old days before Covid and I do wish that this pandemic would end soon. Stay safe, dear readers.

Happy to see a Sri Lankan poet here. It's rare to find one. I enjoyed your poem so much. Thanks for sharing!

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
--Joni Mitchell

I like this poem. When my mom and dad got married, they saw a double rainbow as they were leaving the church.
