Where I Am From
Where I Am From
I am from a land,
Where nothing goes bland.
I am from the punjabi community,
Which is known for its beauty,
And from the people who never shirk their duty.
I am from the Peepal tree,
Where no one is found free,
Everyone share their gossips with much impish glee.
I am from my mother who asks me what I do throughout the day,
Whatever happens I always try to
I am from my father who has punctuality in his veins,
So we haven't ever missed any of our trains.
I am from getting picked on by my
Who believe that there will be no
I am from the chords that were left unattended as time passed by
And from the fear of seeing my loved
I am from the people who have now
And have never given me any scars.
I am from holding on to things too tight,
Unable to release my grip when it no longer felt right.
I am from my friends who support me through thick and thin,
Seeing each other's faces,we always pass a silly grin.
I am from the people who think I stand tall,
All the credit for it goes to Basket ball.
I am from the natural and earthly elements,
And from the socialisation which taught
me to respect people's sentiments.
I am from the feedbacks which led to a
lot of introspections,
And helped me to reflect on different
I am from a school where I became me,
Started off with scribbling alphabets
And ended at scribbled T-shirts.
I am from the teachers that taught me how to do sums and integration,
Who taught me it's not over until I win my own competition.
I am from a college where I persevered to link Cognition, psychoanalysis and identity to kohlberg,
Which,if you know, wasn't less than
crossing an iceberg
I am from the teaching faculty,
Which is seldom a casualty.
I am from a profession which took
me to so many exposure trips,
And my happiness didn't ever slip.
Amongst the many,I cherish the Ajmer
It was so hot ,I didn't even carry any
I went there to volunteer,
And made new friends who were always
ready to cheer.
I am from the capital which is known
for its crime,
Where poverty is rampant and also at
I am from the over protected world
Which says," Prevention is better than
And from the mindset which doesn't
believe that women on their periods are impure.
I am from the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
To working above par,
It seems that my goal is not too far.
