All my school days I sang
The same song that Sister taught us,
“It takes courage to answer a call”
“It takes courage to be true”.
How accurate I felt then,
My spirits were always on the ninth cloud.
No looking back, no tears, no pain,
I knew, only I could help myself,
I was the one who could spread happiness
In my Life.
Days pass and many emotions creep in.
Sentiments and Interests take a U-turn
Confidence still prevails but
Tries to take a wicked run over colleagues
Quarrel over a degree, a post and then a Lifestyle
Every ancient theory propounds to a Puncture
Fear creeps in even when you speak out
The then crawling Devils walk in erect
And destroy the human you are, or you were
And what remains then is just as Ayn Rand says
A Second Hander, just a plain motorized Being!!
