Oh What A Day!

oh what a day,
what a day was today,
not a moment did i have peace,
only the time to pray.

till the moment,
i came to know my fate,
there was just no stopping,
my quickened heart-beat rate.

would it be easy?
would it be what i want?
i wish there were no such questions
hard as i try, stop them i can’t.

till i enter the court,
to hear my verdict,
i have no idea what my fate is,
i don’t want to try and predict.

each second that passes,
feels like a lifetime,
my mind is now so blank,
i can’t hear the nearby churchbells chime.

i hear my name called,
and turn my head around,
as i follow my friend’s footsteps,
now i can’t hear any sound.

there maybe comforting voices,
wishing me good luck,
i return their smiles with one of my own,
only i know where my mind is stuck.

i enter the court last,
it is my choice that decides,
easy known or difficult unknown,
on my hand my fate rides.

i pick up the paper,
open it to see my fate,
and oh thank u God,
it reduced my heart rate.

it is one i know well,
i can do it with ease,
i sit down to write it,
tension now starts to cease.

at long last it is over,
i am victorious in my quest,
now that i succeeded,
i can now just rest.

(reminiscences of the hour before i entered lab for the exam..)

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
