Feels like...

Feels like submitting the blank History paper in 1999
Nothing was correct...nothing was fine
I had no answers; questions were unknown
With no confidence in me I had fears galore.

Feels like losing the debate competition in 2001
Gave up the fight even before it had begun
I had nothing to say; it was not stage fright
Only my timidity had gained more might.

Feels like first heartbreak I had in 2003
Lost all the faith I had in me
Nothing was grey, nothing was right
I saw everything in black n white.

Feels like many such moments in many many years
Living with hundreds of baseless fears
And I smile...
Feels like nothing more can go wrong
Everything will be just all right

The history paper was filled after all,
Several fights were won...
First love was not the last
Many hearts were broken later
But also many lessons were learned

In my journey so far...
Smiled at some fears, some in me still stay
But feels like success is just some steps away



"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed."
Buddha

Astounding… so near to everyone’s life…
