A TURNING POINT


The joyful childhood days,

When I used to hop on the roads instead of walking

When I used to shed tears for toys I wished to own

When I used to show my dramatics, pretending to be sick, to take a day off from school

And, then came a turning point in my life

The cheerful university days,

When I used to dress up like a chic

When I used to bunk those boring lectures with my beloved

When I used to enjoy midnight college fests

And, then came a turning point in my life

The matrimonial days,

When I used to manage my work & house together

When I used to celebrate for the upcoming little soul we made

When I used to cry when my in-laws fought

And, then came a turning point in my life

Now, my soul left the rental body I owned

High above the sky, searching peace

The ray of light calling me

There I see Jesus waiting for granting me peace,

And, then comes an end to the turning points in my life.

- Manasvi.
