Silver Star - 3,639 Points (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

If I were to relive…


Given a lease to relive my life,
I would not tread the paths I trod,
Not trust men trusted, not love women loved,
And would not believe in what I believed.

Given a lease to relive my life,
I would pursue the paths I missed,
Would trust whom I misjudged,
And would believe what I disbelieved.

In a nut shell, I shall grow a new one
To detest the paths that I have to tread
