Good ol’ days

Basking in morning Glory

Writing an allegory

There is some dilatory

Coz I’m lost ruminating

My life’s story.


Carefree and cool

Life in school…

“Focus on ambition”

Was the college mission

Having fun was a conscious decision.


Those friendly dates,

Claiming to be soulmates,

Sneaking out of main gates

Always returning late

Parents worrying about our fates


The proxy calls

Those empty halls

Writing on walls

Romanticizing fall

We have done it all


Those silly fights

Apologies by night

That stage fright

Nervousness slight

Friends making sure I am alright


The good ol’days

Those were the good ol’days,

The days abraise

Only, nostalgia stays.
