Annapoorani K.H., I Year M. Sc. Chemistry.
Every single year,
This month arrives,
This day arrives.
With it comes sadness;
And, a little hope and joy as well.
What is the day?
It’s the last day at college.
Sunny and bright,
This day probably looks the same as the rest;
Yet, the day doesn’t feel the same.
Today, we will say goodbye.
To close friends,
Teachers and yes, even classrooms.
Today, the loneliness of future will strike us
Like a knife to the stomach.
The pain is there,
But the joy will override it.
Where does the joy come from?
After all, we are saying goodbye
To all things familiar.
It is the unknown that brings the joy.
To be man is to hope;
So, when thought of the future comes,
There’s not just fear but also, joy.
Today, we bid adieu to all the familiar
And throw our arms open to a future,
Always hoping for the best!
