I love poetry. It’s amazing to convey through poems what we can’t through sentences. So, I’m sharing a poem I wrote for our university, LPU.
Shivering, Yet Fighting!
Hey, are you afraid of the darkness?
Shivering hands and feeling heartless?
There’s a lot to tell you dear,
Now we have a college, a hope and nothing to fear.
It was like my daily dose,
Discrimination, doubts and perceptions, when sadly imposed.
Was that ill-society, that I faced?
I knew that the world had me replaced.
But who knew that I was amongst a few,
Who had the guts,
To bear all the painful cuts.
Help that I needed but found no one by my side,
I lost everything as the hope within me had died.
Falling apart, I never gave up,
That was the time when my college showed up.
I began to fight, for all the snatched rights,
Thanks to LPU, who gave me the might to put up a fight.
So, let us board the train of change,
Let us make the world a little less strange,
Let us be a little more restless,
It was never too late, so let us end the darkness.
