Exactly a year ago, my friend asked me to write a reprise version of the poem from the movie 10 things I hate about you. And, that is how it all started.
The praise i got for that, made me think, if such a mediocre piece can garner so many likes- I could sure write so much more and better.
And then, the words just poured.
What all I have seen through my life took shape in the form of poetry.
Not to forget, the love I got from you guys. I am greatful to all of my fellow bloggers for accepting me as their own. I love being here and reading y’alls amazing work.
If you are good, no one will care to do things for you because they know you will still love them unconditionally and will still treat them well, because, that is what you always do..
They will never remember you in good times, but you will always give them a shoulder to cry on in their bad times, because, that is what you always do..
They will never know what you have been through, because you never speak about your pain as you are so busy comforting them, because, that is what you always do..
They think you can’t see through their tricks, but you actually are very well aware but still choose to overlook, because, that is what you always do..
- The person who gives alot ends up having nothing.
- The person who forgives easily is always betrayed the most.
- The person who always wishes best for others, has the worst luck.
- The person with the brightest smile is also the one with the saddest heart.
The people around whom my whole world revolved once, are strangers today.
The people I once cried with, today even their smiles don’t reach their eyes.
The people who promised so much, forgot their vows.
The people who used to meet with warmth, seems so cold today..
Those with whom I used to see eye to eye on everything, today we can’t find any common grounds.
I guess this is how life is.. People are meant to change, equations are meant to differ.
Maybe I just wasn’t as ready as them, for this change and it took me some getting used to.
But what really surprised me was,
how surely they left, how effortlessly they adapted to it,
How easily they grew apart while i was still stuck finding the roots..
