A Poem by Maan

We can not stop, stopping is the end of story, we are just meant to keep on moving


after three years of struggle

there were we again

old faces with new passions

with new promises in eyes

smiling with burning rages

sparkling happiness


dreams must have been diminished,

few must have descended,

few must have bewildered faith,

but none has given up,

it was clear and evident

that none can cease us


after three years of campaign

there were we

more open inside

more bright outside,

sharing joys,

loving being one again


nothing can stop us,

from where we want to be,

all it takes is faith

which keeps us going,

and never gets fagged

chasing dreams


we are youth of a difficult age

but much more stronger

more passionate,

after three years I saw us

together like a family,

it was more than a reunion


many of us are in love

trying their luck against all odds,

many of us are sad

cruising their ships in storms,

many of us are taken by grief

but it was clear and obvious


that none can stop us

from chasing our dreams,

and fulfilling them one day,

by living in this nonsensical world,

in this impossibility,

in this nothingness of humanity,


dreams must have been broken,

few must have fallen,

few must have lost faith,

but none has given up,

it was clear and obvious

that none can stop us


after three years of run,


there were we

left with a promise

to be there again with something new

but old us

Author's Note

This poem is for all the school mates of my batch '09, it was wonderful to meet you all, it was magical, it was absolutely reviving, refreshing for my soul, so magical and full of happiness.
Tomorrow I might be here or somewhere else but you guys will always be with me, in my mind, in my heart, like a refreshing stream of cold water running along side the mountains of my heart.
I love you all. . :)

I remember my old friends, we thought we were going to conquer the world! Some things have changed but I'll always remember them and our hopes and dreams with a smile. To see them again is wonderful

Reunions usually go both pathways,

This is a lovely piece of writing. Although its obviously very personal to you and your school friends, it's also a very versatile piece of writing. For example, in three years time, that's exactly how and where i want to be with someone who I don't see as much as I used to. It's really appealing emotion that your portraying. I enjoyed it a lot.

Not really much to say about what I am or anything about me. Its like I've never find myself in the spheres of something and something not, I always wander somewhere in between them, all I get is the .. more..
