Written By Ankita Srinivasan (Grade 10)

Ever had your whole life flash,

An instant in front of you

Then gone for good, it won’t come back.

The cherished moments have bid adieu.

You wanted to savour it,

Instead the present is back.

No pause, no replay,

All that lingers is black.

A memory from the past comes,

Bright, happy and full of life.

A tinkling laugh lingers in your ear,

A laugh that pushes away all strife. 

Your heart fills with emotion,

Memories of a few happy occasions are bright.

But the others, you have no idea,

Twinkling moments tantalisingly out of sight.

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...
