Voyage of Youth

Updated: 1 day ago

Cover Photo by Pankaj Tottada

When I left my home, I was eighteen,

How the world will be, I was keen.

Being a teen, an adventure was all that I wanted,

But to pursue it, all things turned out to be unsorted.

In my youth, the most beautiful gift I ever got was a boon of friendship. ​

I nurtured it with my loyalty and lent a supporting hand,

But when things go wrong, I look to see no one around.

I learned that sometimes it’s not the people who change, but it’s the mask that slips.

​Only years later, I was skilled enough to deal with masked personalities.

However, the next leap of learning was a huge one,

As I was stuck in the pursuit of earning tonnes.

Though it wasn’t a cakewalk,

It was a proud moment, as I was the protagonist of my own talks.

For a few days, everything about me made everyone around me curious,

Right from my dress to my carelessness.

But, with time, I lost it as well and

In the very end,

All I learned was,

Every one of us can only love one person after all
