Alone

You are the one,

Who taught me world,

You are the one,

Who left alone,

Am I happy?

You showed me a reason to live,

Am I sad?

Because you’re not with me right now,

How should I survive now?

What should I get rid of?

Love?

You?

Your thoughts?

No that’s me,

Who is still thinking of you,

Walking towards you,

Falling in love with you,

Crying behind you.

Exam day.

On exam day, The busy things, works that happened. The stress feeling and everything. My way of writing answers. My mistakes and motto. Foolish and also funny things.

Good morning,
Hurry burry getting ready,
Nom nom breakfast,
Packing bags very fast,
Run, run, run and run,
Get on the bus,
Find a seat,
Open the book, turn pages,
Noisy horn,
Talking people,
Disturbing surroundings,
No, no, no, no,
Stop has arrived,
Get down the bus,
Rush into college,
Two hours,
To study,
Turn pages,
Important topics,
Underlined headings,
Short theories,
Long paragraphs,
What not!
Turn turn turn and turn,
People walking here and there,
Laughing, cracking jokes,
That’s so funny,
Oh no!
Tensed, stressed, scared,
Concentrate, concentrate,
No time left,
Read it like rapid-fire,
five minutes before the exam,
Rush into exam hall,
Take a deep breath,
Seeing the question paper,
Ticking all the questions,
That I know,
Write, write and write,
Known questions completed!
Now, it’s time to write the answers,
To the questions I don’t know,
A simple naughty logic,
I write answers to the unknown questions,
From the topics that I read before,
Similar to this question,
Including the headings,
Feeling sad,
That I wrote something,
which is not an exact one,
But I also feel,
Something is better than nothing,
Walking out of exam hall,
Feeling that I learned a lot,
Wrote a lot from learned,
Now I need to wait,
And see what happens next,
After the exam,
I don’t discuss,
What happened in the exam,
Thinking that,
Prepare well for next exam,
Don’t write anything useless,
Which doesn’t match the question,
Answer well for all topics,
A mistake once shouldn’t be repeated,
The only one thing,
I always keep in mind,
Don’t cheat in an exam,
Write what you know,
Whatever the result may be,
The responsibility and hard work will be yours,
Learn the topics that you haven’t written in the exam,
Nothing wrong, Learn again. Even though it’s late,
You can also learn after the exam,
If you failed the exam,
It helps you while writing again,
If you got passed,
It will help you in the future,
Don’t forget to learn.

Invisible tears

I won’t cry anymore unnecessarily. I’ve learned a lot from my experiences. Many problems surrounding me don’t mean I failed. Every situation in my life makes me strong. Even though I’m right, I may get insulted. I feel no one is ready to accept my answer. Life is like a puzzle to solve and move on.


From my schooling, without my mistakes, I’m insulted in front of many. My haters created a lot of rumors around me. No one in the school spoke to me for week. I’m alone everywhere. Everyone talks about me and laughs behind me. Still, I’ve cried every night but never in front of any. Days passed few people came to me and started talking to me. Because they came to know those are all fake created by an idiot who hates me because I rejected his proposal.


The next one also happened in the school. I don’t know why my professor scolds me for everything. I still remember the day our professor started scolding me in front of the whole class that I’m not studying. He shouted at me that I scored less. While distributing answer sheets, he gave me some other answer sheet and said, “see your marks”. I replied, “this is not my paper!” He just smiled and gave me my answer sheet and, I scored 9 out of 10. Some other girl got 6 out of 10 and, I got scolding’s for 15 minutes unnecessarily. And after knowing the truth, he told her, “no problem, try better next time” Now, what’s this to me. Why this happened to me. Next time he scolded me that I wrote answers in my way instead of writing as given in the book. I don’t know how to write the exact from the book. I write answers in simple sentences. Even though some others score 60 and I score 75, he still scolds me that I’m an underachieving student.

I went to my mom and said these things happen to me in my school. I want to change school. I don’t want to go there anymore. My mom said, ” cry if you made any mistake. Go away if you are afraid.” After that, I studied in the same school. I cried many days because of these situations but not in front of them. After few days, I learned not to waste my tears. Staying alone gives you more strength than being in a group. So I made my tears invisible. I still stood up there and studied well for my career. No matter what I don’t want to cry for some other mistakes and foolish rumors.
