One day when I was sitting in my hostel working on my own. I heard some girls giggling around in the corridors. That was when I wrote this poem and named it The Girl within Me
The Girl Within Me– Poem By Ipshita Bose
I see myself locked in a room,
Neck deep in work,
Struggling to survive;
Earning my bread in a closed building,
Sulking within myself,
For not getting enough,
Fighting for my necessities;
Then I see myself again,
Among the girls playing around in the dark corridors;
The sound of their laughter fills the silence of my room.
I find myself smiling on my own, running towards them.
Participating in their mischief;
Suddenly a cold wind wakes me up.
I find myself caged in my room.
Drowned in boredom, sulking helplessly;
My voice doesn’t seem to reach my soul,
The words I always wanted to share decide to stay within.
And I realize,
One can’t re-live their yesterday in today.
As my heart reaches out to those kids re-living my past in their present;
Wishing they never have to live my present in their future
Hoping they have a better present leading to a better future.Written By- Ms. Ipshita Bose
