Shivangi Chaturvedi

Rookie (Lusaka, Zambia)

Hero


There were moments,
I was afraid.
For you.. afraid for you.
With your big big heart,
and big big tears.

I always knew,
You would rule the world.
Even when you didn't know it,
I did. I knew.

I still remember,
Climbing the roof,
Finding the skelleton.
You were so sad,
And so amazed,
At the fragility, I suppose.

I remember,
When you sang,
And your eyes lit up.
Or when you knew,
you were wrong,
But refused to give up.
And that smile
crooked at one end,
'What? ? '

I remember,
How proud I was,
When you told me,
You had been chosen,
For a play,
Or for your poetry.

And when you yelled,
Standing tall, still do,
And you stamp your foot,
And point at the floor,
And you tremble,
From inside out.
I am afraid for you.

I am afraid,
And jealous.
Of your passion,
And ability.
Let it not seize you,
But guide you.
For you are a legend,
in the making.
And I am proud,
Still.
