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.
Once I write your name on my heart and my mind. Don’t you dare change your mind after I make up mine.
For I am too lazy to replace your name with someone else’s.
In chasing all the possible flowers for my garden,
I forgot to sniff any of their scents.
In chasing one milestone after another,
forgot to stop running and admire the beauty of the pathway.
In chasing all the moments of life,
forgot to savor that one moment.
In chasing those big things,
forgot to be grateful for little things.
That never ending chase!
In the chase to not miss anything, missed out on everything…
Chasing life, I remembered to inhale and exhale,
But, forgot to breathe, just BREATHE.
