@ 20 something

by Kavita

Once upon a time there was a girl who rowed a boat on the ocean of life the day she opened her eyes to it…. as the days went by…the boat got bigger, the sea caught more waves…but she sailed gracefully…cos she was the captain and the only sailor….she saw different boats pass by … friends,acquaintances she made with every co-sailor…. some she showed ways…some she directed…but on her way she moved steady…beautifully…

she stopped by to help those who were falling..who were failing… the break would not retard her pace..it would just make the journey more aggressive and beautiful…

then one fine day she reached an unknown shore.. hundreds she found waiting there…exciting as it seemed … she got down merrily and joined the hundreds…dey jived together to prepare for the new beginning…

the girl found a new boat now…but something was different…dis one had someone on it…. somebody whom she couldnt see but her steps moved to board d ship…. to take the unknown journey…to sail through an illusion…an illusion she thot was d undiscovered love…

as the boat moved a lil….she felt the jerks…d discomfort..she asked the rower to take it back…. he stopped…she started to row it back herself…but then looked back at him….nd returned the oar….

days passed..d waves were stronger…d tremors scary…. nd suddenly she looked around…noone seem to pass by… nothing seemed like hers…
d time had moved…but dey hadnt moved a second…. they were busy fighting the tremors…but the fight took them nowhere….they were stranded in the middle of the sea..nowhere to go…nowhere to see….

he stopped….nd jumped out….and as he swam…she called allowed…she was dumbstuck….the boat overturned….she splashed…she tried holding him for support….but he swam faster nd faster..harder and harder..she tore his clothes to get the hold…but lo…he was gone…gracefully on the shore…

she was struggling…she couldnt swim….she drowned .. deeper and deeper… she gave up hope to ever rise again…. but then she opened her eyes…listened a lil…someone was calling….

she found something to hold…she climbed the rope to reach the surface…there were some sailors…to pull her… she felt relieved…

but then she was sad…again…no..she couldnt hol dit longer…cos she didnt like it…she felt she had the power to get back on her own…nd here she was stopping everybody to help her…

no she didnt want it…she didnt want to pause their journeys…
she let go of the hold….but hit harder and harder and fought to reach the shore where she boarded the fateful boat…

she was back …

drenched in her own tears..
The shore was deserted
she was tired…

But she saw… the boat she boarded could never take her load…the sea was the emotion she spilled on and drowned in…

She is today at the shore again…but..

With a new boat
Which she owns
and swears to never let anybody board…

she would row it in the way she wants to…would show the ones their ways who cross by…

SHE WILL SAIL!!!

@20 something she struggled …loads…. she didnt grow…

But as a new day dawned today with a promise of a new journey..beautiful,aggressive and as paced as it can be…

SHE SWEARS

1. to not to drop a tear
2. to think less and focus more
3. to stand firm as she was …as the ruptured knees heal
4. to re-build the mirror around her soul which broke and made her soul bleed as she walked on the broken pieces..

PHOENIX … m born again!!!
