Train No. 2022

While travelling in a train
we arrive at stations,
the stations don’t arrive
and so are the years and ages
that come and go
whether we are there or not…

Age is a number
so is the year
in which we come across
events, situations and people
both ugly and beautiful
pleasant and unpleasant
seen and unseen
as also known and unknown,
outcomes may betray
our needs and expectations
but we get memories and lessons
as our takeaways…

The train number 2021
has brought us
where we are today,
watch the sun going down
that may cast a shadow
it’s a reality
but it rises again
to bring back the light and warmth
snatching from darkness…

Let’s board tonight
a new train number 2022
without prejudice
to anything or anybody
but with hope and thrill
with courage and determination
that we will reach the destination
we have set for ourselves…

Happy New Year 2022๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰
