Another Strike

Written By Diya Barmecha (Grade 8)

Another day,
Another strike.
Time passes,
But I stay where I am.

The guards come and go
But I stay where I am
I get a message to meet my family
But I stay where I am

Looking back I could have had so much
If I would have stayed where I am
But I moved and made
A big mistake

I killed someone, for money
For only money
Something that could
Have been acquired another way.

Looking back
If I could have stayed where I have
I would not have been here
I would not have been a jailbird
I would have been free

The next day,
Another strike.
This is my life,
One day and one strike,
That’s all I do

I am 15 years old and live in Mumbai. I love reading and subjects like math and science because they are logical. I enjoy watching movies and learning more about the world. I like to understand people's opinions on various things.

Oh, the spring season, it brings such delight,
With warmth and sunshine, the world takes flight,
The flowers bloom, their colours so bright...

Sometimes, you have to lose all things you like
The things you loved now left behind
Sometimes, time doesn't favour you...
