Roads to Me

I was walking forward in the quaint highway

As I thought of the roads left back

A sudden thought gripped me,

To experience what I had experienced; to look back

There was I again, in the old corridoor

Shy, timid, without a sense of dignity

Smiling at everyone, bawling when bullied

Palpable without without capability

There I was again, sitting in the empty classroom

Sobbing gently over a lost friend

Who was wrong not wronged

And yet was the one to announce the end

There I was again, sitting on my bed

Emotionless, rudderless and blasé

Broken in the worst way

As I could no longer understand who I was

And here I am again, on the highway

After living through that intense grief again

It strikes me then, that I am no longer

The shy timid girl, who never stood up for herself

Or the one who blamed herself for everything wrong

Or the one who couldn’t keep in touch with herself

Maybe what they say is true sometimes

Maybe it takes suffering to change one

Maybe I have changed, for the better


Here we are again, in this lil’ blog

As you might have guessed the “there was I again” line was inspired by All Too Well by none other than Taylor Swift!

Here’s the book quote: “Perhaps that was why I had to endure pain— because true transformation can only happen in the crucible of suffering. All impurities fall away from gold only when it’s heated to melting.”

Lets see who knows the book!
