Well, the winter Passed away and the T’s & shorts once again returned to the campus, bringing with the The Birds & Early Sun rise & Longer Days..
& It Brought with it Autumn…with whom we could easily relate our lives !
You may ask why…
answer is simple…
When we came here, fresh from our triumphs over one of the most Hyped battles we had fought till Date, our Faces used to speak volumes of the confidence, of the burning desires, of doing or achieving some task that will one Day really make a difference in this world, of the Faith we had in our abilities & so much more.
And at the same time the Trees here, uses To Sway In the evening Breeze ( Just the way the Young lads used to do.)…
Well Days Passed, Weeks converted to months , Winter Came & the Semester ended.
The Breeze Stopped Blowing, The Trees stopped swaying.
The subtleness, the Ingenuity & the Innocence got washed away.
The Faces were no longer of those who wanted to change the world , but of those who Just somehow wanted to taste the fruit of Hard Work without even moving a Muscle( at times).
& with it came times of frustrations, anxieties & stuff.
& so today we have become skinny( i surely have!), lost faith in ourselves & our abilities( & guess even i lead the charge here as well) & hence today stand still, Thinking of what could have been( had we had not triumphed).
& we stand still, in this Autumn , our faith ,our subtleness,our qualities stripped from our Bodies, Just Like Trees, who stand still, In This Autumn, standing naked, with leaves stripped from their Bodies!
& We Just Stand -“Silently, Lifelessly, Still”.
