Take a minute, and sit down.
Without looking at your phone,
For once, just breathe.
In the symphony of silence,
You'll somewhere find your answers too.
In the chaos of clutter,
Lost somewhere, like 'You' did.
Do you, miss your old self,
The person you were,
The people you had,
Diligent, with wings,
When your potential changed to kinetic too,
Before Snapchat took a toll on you,
Before even you celebrated Valentine's,
Before, when your universe comprised of only two faces,
When one pencil meant the world you,
A class test was something for which you would sacrifice your favourite TV show.
Before you lived the hypothetical college life in reality,
Before Bollywood could play with your mind about engineering,
Before, when, friendship bands were a competition to Rakhis,
Before, when you said what you meant,
When the internet for you was wikipedia,
And wikipedia meant projects,
Do you want to throw that time back,
Or relive it once like forever?
In my words is hidden misery,
The misery of happiness,
My want to live my life old school,
I want to see the stars once again,
I want to think straight and not dirty,
For once, I beg to myself, to give me,
Give me not that time, not those memories,
But my old self back,
Which I lost somewhere on the road,
The road more travelled,
I think it fell down from my little bag,
The one with timeless moments,
The one with outlived memories,
I stare at the sun, bright and sunny,
Hoping for my two little bags, to be the same. -NEETI
