Echoes of a Year...

Facing Challenges, Embracing Hope, and Staying Strong

By Sugan Ya Published 5 months ago 1 min read

In the passage of this year, time unraveled,

Faced challenges, danced with joy, and diligently traveled.

Childhood whispers linger in playful echoes,

Books and studies, a serious undertow.

Influences painted dreams with a subtle brush,

Studying hard seemed like a promising hush.

Moments swung between sorrow and delight,

Friends, like verses, colored the day and night.

College's echo, a party without farewell,

Jobless struggles in a lockdown spell.

Years slipped away, silent and unseen,

But this year, loss draped over the scene.

Not just possessions, but souls departed,

Expressions unspoken, sentiments charted.

Lost in the secret caverns of despair,

Longing for a comforting presence to repair.

A heartfelt plea echoes in the quiet,

"It's not your fault, don't bear the weight.

Hold on to hope in the unknown,

I'm here for you, never alone."

Challenges penned lessons in life's rhyme,

Growth, laughter, and love marked the time.

Here I stand, unbroken, in the ongoing quest,

Not defeated, not shattered, just doing my best.
