I remember not much, the start of this year.
But I am sure, I’ll remember the end of it.
With such a depressing year, I never expected,
All I wanted to do, was quit.
Many had it worse than me,
Many had it better, I guess.
But my thinking only caused discomfort
And halted my progress.
Regardless of being a sucky year,
I must thank the 2016.
It taught me a lot of stuffs,
Acting like a teacher unseen.
Whom to trust and whom not to,
When to help and how to avoid.
Broken many times, I was, yet,
Learnt to strong the heart when toyed.
Yes, to be honest, this year did trouble,
To the extent, I wanted to stop.
But in the end, when thought about it a lot,
I was grateful for every teardrop.
Understand, I did, the reason behind the hardships,
Every struggle and everything thrown at my face.
It was all painful beyond what I could bear,
But in fact, was just another way of the God’s grace.
I am a different man from the previous year,
Realized it, was a little too late.
I’ll be a changed man again, the next year,
All I had to do now, was just celebrate.
Acceptance, dawned upon me slowly,
Of the equality of the nature of duality.
Along with the happiness, the tide of sorrow,
Played a vital role to influence my personality.
With a smile and a heavy heart, naturally,
I looked up, bowing down instead.
My arms stretched and with a humble heart,
Finally, cluster free was my head.
“Thank you 2016, may you rest in peace.”
Uttered softly, I was like a child.
“Come on 2017, what have you got huh!?”
I was ready to run wild.
