New Year’s Note to Myself

Written By Aadya Kataruka (Grade 9)

With the whole world hovering,
I feel like the need of promising,
That at times of shuddering,
I will do nothing,
But help myself in recovering.

Be it a friend or an enemy,
I shall behave similarly,
try and provide every feeling of serenity,
Mentally and environmentally,
Apologise for any mistake even if it’s accidentally.

With every upcoming life riddle,
I promise to never give up,
Might get stuck in the middle,
Might get everyone’s dismissal,
But make myself believe it’s not impossible.

Be it the darkest of times,
I shall fill it with light,
Make it shine,
Always wear a smile!
And make it worth living life!

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...

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

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