Just this. 

How can I let you know

That choices are never choices

That the options you have

Are often governed

By voices, not your own?

That feelings are just feelings

They pass. What hurt yesterday

Today is water off a duck’s arse. 

You change, those ideals

You wear high upon your breast,

They change. You think 

Beyond yourself. And your life

Is rearranged. And if you stop 

To think, only one thought 

Should ring: This is the life I lived.

These are who I loved. 

With all their warts and all,

No regrets. Just this.

    Hi ms.ipsita….
    My friend has written this poem ….wanted to share with u

    Two pairs of shoes,two pairs of dress,school bag was heavy,but there was no stress

    Waking up was hard,dressing up was pain,milk was a must, mom asked bournvita or plain
    Late to assembly,eyes searching for the gang,smiles meant high five,lips read a slang
    Classroom was circus, teachers called us rude,lunch breaks went hungry,as we already ate the food
    Pencil was knife,scales was our sword,we played stupid games, when we all got bored
    One crush per day, one teacher very hot,making sweet puppy face, when we got caught
    Oh school my school, you make me smile,hey classmates lets go again for a while
