Amidst a whirl of chaotic confusion and heightening anxiety of the unknown,
My heart silently screamed as the clock struck twelve marking the beginning of many ends,
While my mind reluctantly argued, “every end has a beginning.”
Time flew as waves of mindlessness engulfed us,
And with a slow abruptness,a long memorable journey breathed its last.
Everyone knowingly vowed to stay in touch but time would tell its own tale,
A new beginning of being vulnerable started,
We were unbound,we were free and life stealthily whispered,“Welcome to college.”
For many souls it brought struggles unspoken about,
The immense heaviness of leaving home,
The unwanted acceptance of growing up,
The gut-wrenching pain which swelled within me like shards of glass ripping me apart,
Because of people I never knew I could live without.
The journey we call life begins,
Of discovering new souls,
Of learning to fall and run again,
Of moments of joy,
Of moments of despair,
Thus,the sands of time holds its own mystery.
