Bit By Bit.. - Poem by Khyati Mehra

Bit by bit…
Part by part..
My family has made me…
With a lot of heart…

When I was learning..
When the world was new to me…
They made sure there was no bad turning…
Nothing bad my eyes should see…

Protected me… from this Big Bad world…
I grew up under their care… into a nice pretty girl.. 

Their teachings are a treasure…
Can never let them go…
And now that I face this world…
How 2 deal wid them I kinda know..

I was happily living my life…
With the rules I had always been taught…
Ready to face the next day…
Watever with it it brought…

Then there was a day….
That a dirty storm hit me…
I had never seen it before…
It was like a snake that bit me..

I was crippled…I fell…
I thot I would never rise again…
And that it was death’s knell..

All my faith was broken asunder…
They made me feel my life was a blunder…
I cud not dream… I dare not…
I cannot get what I want… it cant just be sought, …

I was falling.. I was dying…
Wish some1 cud tell me they were all lying…

Suddenly I felt life seeping back again…
Something around me started soothing the pain…

There were some beautiful words…
Which I at first cudnt hear in my distress…
They were my people…
Who had been slowly clearing all this mess…

I dint even come to know…
When they started building me back again...
Their love.. their thoughts.. their faith in me…
Made me feel all those who hurt me were insane…

They surrounded me completely..
As they did when I was small…
They held me high and with my feet so firm…
No1 cud now make me fall…

I felt no evil cud reach me…
It could at its best just try…
Till I have these angels with me…
My eyes are always gonna be dry… 

God I thank you for this day…
These guardians for keeping the evil away…
The evil is also just a way to let me know…
That forever my family will stand by me…Will never let the faith in maself go…! !
