That Gloomy Day..... - Poem by Shefali Srivastava

I did according to my daily routine and got to school early in the morning.
My colleagues asked me “what did you prepare? ” I considered it for a minute but said nothing.

I remember the day when I woke up and found everything puzzling and disturbed.
I woke up and thought what was special as I found everything unclear and perturbed.

I did according to my daily routine and got to school early in the morning.
My colleagues asked me “what did you prepare? ” I considered it for a minute but said nothing.

Teacher said, “You have two days left.
Get ready for the tests as they are approaching.”

I became worried and sat to work and started preparing, studying and reading.
Television time was shortened as teacher’s voice was echoing and high sounding.

I could not get rest even for a while and then it came afternoon, evening and then nighttime.

I prayed to God and got on bed but after sometime I felt it was cold and grey.
“I should switch off fan.”
I thought and as I switched off fan everything I found was dark and grey

No, electricity was not cut off.

No, bulb was not fused off.

Yeah, I slept off as I switched off and when I aroused I however remembered that gloomy day However, all the night.
