Two Years to Experience......Two Years to know


Stranded on the streets, I didn't know where to go
Saw the others go and followed with the flow

Across those gates there was so much to know
Ignorance lingered all over like a shadow

As I entered, my feet moved slow
Coz I was new and had nothing to show

Shaking hands and making friends,I no more felt hollow
I learnt to mingle and learnt a little more

Peaople all around had a smile to show
I learnt to smile and learnt a little more

As I passed teachers,I began to bow
I learnt to respect and learnt a little more

With love all around,hatred was the foe
I learnt to love and learnt a little more

With someone,when I had an odd row
I learnt to forgive and learnt a little more

During the tough days,I felt a little low
I learnt to pick up and learnt a little more

Tough days continued and the good ones came slow
I learnt to be patient and learnt a little more

At every other barrier,bravery was the synonym for go
I learnt to be brave and learnt a little more

Every misery was fought and happiness had to follow
I learnt to fight and learnt a little more

Every single time I was shown the door
I learnt my way in and learnt a little more

Sown as a seed, I was left to grow
I learnt to grow and learnt a little more

Passion was the word that kept me on the go
I learnt to be passionate and learnt a little more

To reach tomorrow,I had a day to go
I learnt to live the day and a learnt a little more

There were no goals and I had no motto
I learnt to set goals and learnt a little more

I Learnt to know and I learnt to grow
I learnt to learn and learnt a little more
