“My Journey” is a poem which came about as a reply to a poem a teacher had written to me. I was in the tenth standard and my class teacher, who herself did a lot of poetry wrote one for me.
Read on and leave your comments and questions.
With aspiration in my eyes;
With a fire in my heart;
And believe in myself,
I had begun my journey-
The Journey to explore the ocean unsailed.
I knew the ocean stretches far off the coast,
But the distance was too small for the dreams I beheld.
I knew there would be obstacles, my path,
But I have learned to rise every time I fell.
With my head held high of aspirations;
I promise to let the furnace in my heart glow,
I promise to try even if the hard way cripples me;
I promise to fight and never stop;
For I believe, in being the sun,
And not any other star.
