It often makes me think,
What has been my destination?
Answer, yet to find in my journey,
Where I am to reach?
Milestones, I don’t know what they meant to me,
When I look back, it appears hazy and unexciting,
Journey traversed so far looks routine,
Who set my milestones in my journey?
Answer to that even looks misadventure,
When I look back, my school days don’t look that far,
Date of commissioning almost four decades back,
But looks so fresh in memory lane,
The places travelled so far and after every two years,
Makes list so long,
And make me miss some stations in my effort,
My college even reminds me of my journey,
I was there yesterday, it gives the feeling,
How fast it flew,
Number of years past alone reminds bell of count,
First place of posting, clearly I remember,
It was fear and thrill mixed together,
Star on each shoulder, a great feeling I had,
Quite often I looked at my shoulders,
That reminded me of my transition,
I still remember my first salary,
Those thousand rupees, when I got first time,
It was a feeling apart…
