The Day When I Left My 20 Behind - Poem by navami patil

The Day when I left 20 behind
OMG What a sign in my mind that flashed alight for as second,
Was a shock! ! ! but, not for the just a moment,
Yet a thought that will lead till my end……….
The sign when tried to recognise made a big record,
Was a thought but not for my mind,
Yet a thought that will make me believe
This is not just the end ………………………………….
Tried to collect things that my mind trusted,
Was a part of my long 20 years.
Yet a thought that made a note that
Made me realise it’s a part,
Still have a long way till the end ……
I never know myself, what made me think?
Why a thought of past troubled me so much! ! ! ! ! !
Was not a shock! ! !
Yet a thought that every moment I lived,
Was moment of joy?
As time went on never got to known,
When I left my 20 behind.
Was a shock to my mind, yet a thought to console myself?
Those have to lead life on my own till the end.

PART II
Days which I don’t remember much cause, I was a god’s child,
So purity in my eye that no one hated me……………..
So sweet that all made sure to kiss me and make me smile
No matter what?
I wish I would have never grown ……………
Days when I started was on my feet and
Smiled and started talking,
And did things on my own ……..
Was a surprise of happiness?
That made a mark the first once…
O gosh! ! ! ! ! ! ! I wish I had those moments
Captured and treasured,
When all my words were as sweet as honey
That everyone loved to listen.
I still wish, I would have never grown…
Days came when we had to leave our lovely home
With heavy load on my back,
To a place of wisdom and knowledge,
Days when we had no other thought
As our only wish was to be with our best friends
All the time …………
And always spoke ok things we would do when we grow up.
Dreams as high …which had no limits
but brought a cute smile …………..
I wish I would have never grown….

Days when no load on back, but on brain! !
That was time that made us change,
That this not real life, but life is all about
Struggling and just enjoying…
Pressure on my brain made me think
What next?
I wish I would have never grown …
Things have changed, people have changed,
But made my mind finally..
As days ahead might not be imagined until,
We have right path of planned foundation,
Walls of strong knowledge,
And roof of great success,
Inside lives a heart to pump out
to serve the mankind
and not just itself …………..
I really feel thank god I am grown big now.
