Mortal beings that we are,
Soon we will turn into ash and dust,
And all that will remain of us will be memories.
We featured in so many of people's lives.
Some in a good way, and in some, bad.
Sometimes unintentionally, and sometimes a misunderstanding.

We nimbly scoot past souls,
Hoping to not topple over the fragile,

As time tick tocks, and the dusk of my time to pick and choose a career slowly appears on the horizon, 'well wishers (who knows if they are really well wishers..) come, ringing bells of alarm; 'make her give the UPSC, make her give the MPSC' they say, in concerned voices..

And put an end to my misery.

Something new

The Start of Something new,
Always an endless trail of new discoveries,
A 'Really!' and a 'You too?'.
Years on, the novelty fades.
And what binds us will be familiarity,
A comradeship born out of our shared experiences.
And even that will tire us,
And we will long to be back to the Start.
Back to the Start of Something new.
