A Bachelor Pining
Author: Mukhthar


When joining college,
Thought I had come of age,
Expected graduation to be a rosy bed;
I lacked ken of the travails ahead.

Raped of my pride and dignity,
By the teaching faculty,
I was figting to stay sane,
Strolling in the desolation lane.

Thanks to those true friends,
I emerged focussed and cleansed,
Revised my exam strategy,
Won back self-respect and dignity.

I remain a lonely heart,
Yearning for acceptance and love,
Despondent I am not,
Having graduated, I am free now.

------- Author's Notes -------

It is a coming-of-Age poem which reflects on the ways life's lessons have moulded my persona. the triumphs and travails I encountered are the source of these words.
