It’s all happening and not happening at the same time
Like the near-normal AC temperature in this hotel room
Body fat depleting, brain cells increasing,
Accents developing and arguments changing.
Like the chuk chuk of the Mumbai local,
I go non-stop; the matrix come to life.
Yet, in this whirlwind of hurried changes,
Those moments of metamorphosis go unnoticed.
Like how those treacherous mosquitos devour me
All night, waking me to bruises I have no memory of.
(A foreign situation, I really must confess)
I wish there were a repellent for college.
It’s happening too soon; I’m just 18
But actually, this is all I really wanted.
It’s very confusing; a labyrinth of decisions,
A burning broth of growth; take me away.
Everyday I get up, waiting for the rainbow,
But the howling storm takes its time to sleep.
Still one day, when I’ll open my yawning windows,
The warm sunshine will be here to embrace me.
I’m so sorry for not posting anything last week. My transition to college is a little tough on me, but I’m confident I’ll be fine. Hopefully, I’ll post more often because my University gives me a LOT to think about. Have a great day today and remember, things are GOING to be fine. Trust yourself.
