Writing poems for the last couple of months, I was wondering when I would write my next post which would not be a lyrical composition that would not rhyme with each ending line. I was wondering what I would write about as days have come to an end. Should I write about how each one of us would be feeling knowing that we will be going away in different directions after staying together for 4 long years… sharing whatever we want and whatever we like (or don’t like). Would it be appropriate that I would tell about what life at institutes means to all of us?
A void filled me up just as I gave my last exam paper. Everyone felt elated around me knowing the torture of giving exams were over. Mugging up, walking in the corridor of the hostels with someone’s notes and smoke of the cigarettes filling up the rooms and walkway were the normal things during exam time. Well, the one aspect that stands out is the NIGHT OUT thing!!!
Being a normal activity, I hadn’t experienced it my life or rather in these 4 years. Almost seeing everyone waking up the whole night before the exam and trying to remember 40-50 pages of notes, I fathomed how they could manage to write after being awake the whole night. Trying many times to make a night out was one of the hardest things to do for me.
But, but, but…
It happened!!! My first night out and would u believe it…the day on which everything ended, the day on which we were now alumnis. And the thing that helped me in achieving this were the 52 cards. This was also the rarest of rare occasions that I was playing cards. Being a novice also didn’t help me a lot but still I insisted on playing. Minutes ticked by and then hours and suddenly, my stomach told me that it was hungry. Now where would I get something to eat and that too, at 4 in the morning? Luckily the night canteen was still open and 5 of us ate MAGGI.Eating maggi at 4 o’clock was not the best thing to do but we had no choice. And to our surprise, it was morning. I do not remember when I saw the pleasant morning or the sunrise but it was really beautiful… so peaceful and pleasant that we decided to go for a morning walk. Armed with camera and in our half pants we took a tour of our institute and it was one of the most refreshing walk, i had ever took.The morning breeze caressing our skin and feeling of coolness...ahhhhh.

Sits a lonely soul,
Full of life,
Full of sorrow.
Wandering through the street lights,
And asking the same question,
Why has this to end?
Can’t this moment freeze for few seconds?
The neon lights with their reply,
As prompt as the eagle can fly,
My friend, everything has a happy beginning,
And a tearful end.
But, an end has a new beginning,
The lone one says,
Just as dusk gives way to dawn,
The cycle of life goes on.
The loneliness of the roads speak,
One comes with no-one,
And leaves behind everyone.
With my friends around me,
Why would I think of leaving them now?
Yes, parting gives tears,
But it makes memories much sweeter.
The hot summer wind,
Breezing through the leafless trees,
Inflicting so much pain.
Asks with utter disdain,
Again comes the reply,
My friend, no one is alone,
Even the mighty wind carries sand along,
And sings a melancholy song.
