Milestones

It was the last day of college

All the student’s faces were lit with smiles

As they threw there caps in air

Saying hello to a hard earned degree

They saw the memories flash by

Introduced as strangers

From the awkward hello to hardest goodbye

To group parties to all night group studies

They did it all together

How they spent more time in the cafeteria than in class

The double meaning jokes

To mass class bunks

Sharing that 1/2 chai

To eating lunch in the last bench during the class

They realised that there innocence of this world was replaced with a paper of a degree

That blocked them from this world from the next day forth

As they learnt more than just the books

The vaule of good friends

  2. How these times get etched like scars of memories. A melancholy of independent times.
