Rajashree Bhagwat

Greeting every arrival, you tread me

Between high springing hopes and hard knocks

Between bitter, twisted truth and facts

Between the mightiness and insignificance.

There were promises to keep, miles to go

Hopes, desires, joy, and love

Lurking at me tall and large

You were sacred, colossal, and boundless.

You gave me times that I was truly amazed at

Feel a certain way, have perspectives

Made me risk, lose and restart

Midst defeat, fear, sorrow, despair, and hate.

You made me achieve, live and aspire

Sense of elation inspiring me

Joy, gloom, and miracles always beset me around

You made me hold on to people and moments.

In the certain and uncertain tides

You rose me up from my broken crushed self

Made me a question on whys’, hows’ and whats’

Brought in regrets and realizations.

All the treaded roads now converging

I stand here looking back as far as I can

Perspective, people, moments, charm, will

All fading, turning barren diminishing me.

It is said and believed, this is life

So, rising up from the illusions

I felt for the pulses of my core

A new being, much mightier, awaiting me!
