Hey 2018 My muse !
Did you remember? We meet on Monday,
With the same verve and fun,
But a different glow and blow
Just like an ocean flow!
You came as a whiff of light,
Made my year so cheerful and bright,
Showering your love and care over me
So that I learn all thick and thin with full of glee.
The beginning of 2018 was like a power loom
Grandeur, magnificent and splendour.
But picture was yet to hit
Because I was just at the grass feet.
First three months were full of fun and festive
That knitted me with warm and affection
And upbeat with majestic colours.
As month passes, the road got tough
That turned me quite numb and rough
Because I failed in my career test.
I had put efforts day and night
With an intention to dart so perfect
But my destiny had already chosen
Something so bright and tight.
There came a phase
Where I thought I can’t
But 2018 gave a pat
With a pinch of trust “Only You Can”.
May and June gave a hit to my poems,
Arousing a desire to see my name in a newspaper.
They helped me to prove “Only I Can”.
Plethora of companies bang me with “No vacancy for you”
I still searched, roamed to get such job that I want.
It was’nt easy but not difficult enough to drop
But I choose to fight and not stop.
June finally bestowed me with a job
That I always wanted, of my interest.
Now I started sailing with my ship,
That gave me a powerful leap.
In the later, something fairylike, supernatural happened,
An opportunity bang my door, guess what?
It was Business Standard,
a largest Indian English newspaper.
This newspaper gave me a chance
To ink and see my name under my article.
Thanks to my college faculties,
Who teach from heart,
That’s plain to see,
They think you’re divine
And I totally agree.
It held a magical moment in my eyes,
Scintillating as a star,
Shining like a moon,
Dear 2018! I knew not
You’ll give me such a grandeur opportunity.
Failures often twisted me with lies
They tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I decided to rise.
This year had many varied scenes
Of joy and peace, of grief and pain,
Learning was a fun,
Because I fought and not turned.
