end of a year

As the year almost draws to an end,
As we ready ourselves to welcome the new one,
Manchester, June 2011

With open arms and heightened hopes,
I look back at my past year,
And see glimpses of jubilation and sorrow.

There were days when I was on top of the world,
When I felt loved and cared for,
And yet there were moments,
When I felt like I was screaming and no one was listening.

And along this year's road, I learned many lessons,
This world is a cruel place to the confused,
The early bird gets a place in LSE,
And clouds come in all shapes and sizes.

No matter how hard you try,
You will always end up feeling like a prize trophy or scar,
Who they flaunt and hide in in their kitty parties.
People sometimes say what they don't mean,
And if you take it all to your heart,
Pretty soon, it will feel like a punctured, bullet riddled organ.

Take nothing to heart,
Screen them all out,
And a happy world it is.

Imphal, August 2011

Drown out the cynics,
Smile at the 'you can't do its',
Just nod to the 'you should do its',
And deep inside keep masked your own 'I want to do its'..
Your time will come,
To shine and say 'I always knew I could'
And if it doesn't,
Well atleast you gave no one the chance to say 'I told you so'.

This year was like any other year,
Just another year to add to the pile of years gone by,
Rules of the game don't change in a year it seems.
