Starting Trouble Poem by Nanthinii Mohan

Starting Trouble

Rating: 4.5

I remember the day, when I wrote my first verse!
Writing a poem was not at all a matter of business for me,
And it was not a colossal chore, when my master asked me to write one;
But, in veracity I have ever written none.

Pondering on great poetic legends and their near and dears,
Their prodigious thoughts crammed my wits;
The proceedings seemed as if they are gliding higher than the clouds;
I am all set and clear nearly for hours.

Then my sister scoffed at me, brother mocked with her,
Granny chuckled, grandpa giggled and of course there was a silencer!
Amazed, to get appraisal even before I moved further;
After all, those are initiatives for an up-and-coming writer.

I astounded that I too got critics, and it made me to move on;
Yet puzzled to find out what they actually mean.
But it made me to climb that unclimbed mountain;
And fasten my mission.

Then with loads of coolness, I took my wand
To wave her magical spell for my deed.
Everything went impeccably organized
Until I got a doubt how to get it started!
