Just A Year - Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

Just a year..
Seemed to get swept by, within a seconds pulse of my soul
Whatever I had, kept searching for all my self assigned goals
Mesmerized at my inner voice
I didn't look for a second choice


Didn't care what the world around demanded
Just did what my soul commanded
Gave a damn to all boundaries
No time to ponder, no time to wonder of worries


Some disowned, some abandoned, some moved away
From near to very far and never came my way..
Broken by the cloud of hate,
My head got lashed by the wave of fate.


I had a few dreams left with me
Lots of realizations dawned upon the sea..
Of my turbulent mind, that still stayed with my soul
Some new resolutions, new promises and some other goal


Don't lament, grieve, don't shed a tear
Just smile and bury all your deepest fears
It doesn't help as the year finally says adieu
Get set..go! , days of mirth will soon catch you!
