I Can Do It
You placed an obstacle infront of me by saying you hated me,
Well good news is you can keep your views for all to see.
For I’m not going to care about what people say,
I’m going to do my job creatively & I’m going to do it my way.
I can conquer my fears & your malice for me,
I will experiment patiently about what else I can be.
I’m not your slave or your rag doll for you to throw in the muck,
I’m a teacher & a writer which makes clay models out of guck.
I teach India’s tomorrow as well as India’s today,
I use the tools that I have to teach any topic that comes my way.
I know this journey is going to be tough because you are not there,
But I can do it all the same & I can do it anywhere.
You called me a loser to my face because I was good to you,
I’m not going to let your words of envy ever come true.
I will pen down my story to conquer the world in which I live,
I will learn to love again & much more I will learn to give.
I was on the verge of breaking up when you said goodbye,
I kept on asking myself how did it happen I kept on asking why?
But now it is over I want to move on with my chalk & pen,
I know that I’m going to make it big someday & it don’t matter when.
If I can achieve my goals then will come back again?
Maybe yes or no but this is final I have nothing left to bargain.
You are a chapter in my life that has passed it’s time,
To think of you when my students need me is worse than a crime.
I know I can do it & I know I will find true love,
With a chalk & a pen I will soar like a dove.
For you are gone now another chapter begins today,
I know at the end we will meet when my goals are fulfilled & I am waiting for that someday.
