That Special Somebody - Poem by shreya koppaka

I felt all alone,
No friend to my mind is known,
I had no company,
I was deserted and left as just me,
No soul to turn to, no shoulder to cry on,
No being to share with, all are dreams ling gone,
I feel so empty and hollow,
That all my words are crazy and shallow.

I thought I need someone for me to be complete,
Somebody who leads me through a path to succeed,
Somebody who could take control of my existence,
Who would love me dearly and wouldn’t mind my dependence,
I was obsessed with this so much,
That even a thought about this someone gave be a rush,
I was daydreaming and convincing my soul,
That finding this somebody would take me to my goal,
To define myself this person I needed,
To be happy my search must be succeeded,

Anybody I would meet anybody I would see,
My mind would say that person this could be,
All questions gave me anger and unrest,
It was like my patience was being put to test,
The thought of mine and this somebody’s bond,
Was making me frustrated, boundaries beyond.

Amongst all this irritation of mine,
The star of knowledge on me did shine,
That after practically looking at everbody,
It would be so easy to find this special somebody,
It was not far but within me,
It was that thing which would lead me to my destiny,
I realized nobody can complete me,
If I wasn’t to succeed, the truth I have to see,
My survival was my own burden,
And that one has to jump one’s own hurdle,
The only companion in this race,
Is that special somebody who has no face,
This special somebody is my own confidence,
My will power and strength is the only reason for my existence.
