(The) Road less travelled


From the time I had been a kid 

The road not taken by Robert Frost had my heart 

And even then I had a strong premonition, that in my life 

I was sure to pick the road less travelled by 

The clues were right there 

Nothing conventional has ever appeased my heart 

But an obedient child as I always was 

I did every bit to fulfil my parents desires 

Became an engineer and got a handsome job 

Married and had a child at thr right age

But the dreams all of them still lay

Somewhere in the deepest corner of my heart

Thus at the first chance to be able to fulfil them 

I jumped on it with my heart and soul

Knew it was not the road taken by all

But the rebel in me still gave a happy nod 

From board room hustles of the corporate 

I was by the bedroom writing quietly 

To my heart’s content 

It truly what a shift paradigm 

It didn’t give me money 

But it gave me peace and joy 

I was sure if I kept burning midnight’s oil

I shall soon transform my passion into my profession

Glad God saw my hard work 

And gave my blog the desired recognition

With appreciation started coming requests 

To groom some students in their writing and public speaking skills

Thus I began my academy 

My most satisfying and gratifying project till date 

What kids and adults I groomed during those days 

Still are my family and mean to me so much 

I felt I will spend my life now in Pune peacefully 

Amidst nature and my students always around me 

The road not taken became my means to fulfil my dreams 

Even if it was only for some fruitful years become I had to shift to Delhi

My first love writing still keeps me sane 

I am grateful for this gift in abundance 

No matter how adverse my journey gets 

I am still happy sailing on the road less travelled
