My Journey so far – A Poem
You see, it feels just like yesterday when I first opened my eyes.
The first time I uttered the words “mom” “dad”.
And the first time I learnt to walk.
And without realising, the first I started to learn.
Time went by and I started to school.
Learning things that I began to adore.
And despite the homesickness that lay upon me the most,
I loved the teachers and toys the very more.
They say “bonds are thicker than blood”,
and I learnt as I grew further on, the true meaning of these words.
Acquaintances became friends, and friends became ‘people I couldn’t live without’.
Every day became better than the previous.
We grew further on, having to decide , the path that we shall walk.
Doctor, engineer, pilot were the names piling up among our peers.
And I decided to choose the path less walked by,
and here I am Writing this poem, without a regret of my choice
You see, who knew, work is always different than imagined.
From a child to an adult, my story has built.
And amidst it all, I wonder where shall my path now lead.
and I know for one thing, that journey is still long from over.
The future I see, is bright and brilliant.
For in this year, I’ll reach the end of the road.
The path less walked by is now left with dark glowing footsteps,
Of mine, forever instilled in the sands of time.
And, just as how , my mentors, have guided me,
I too shall stand , to help many others like me to walk the test of time.
The end of my road is almost nearing, and
it may soon be time for me to fly the skies.
But until then, I walk and walk, till the earth stands still or I transpire.
