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.


Solitude’s Search

Alone versus loneliness, two sides of a coin,
One a peaceful state, the other a mournful groan.
I'm sitting here, alone in my room...

Summer of Study

Beneath the searing summer sun,
My friends and I studied one by one,
Gripping our pens with razor-sharp minds...

Time Flies By

Was it a dream?
Or, was I not alive?
Everything went by...
