My Journey

a poem by Ramalakshmi L

My journey of life began when
I touched this mighty planet,
And smiled at the morning sun;
As a baby I smiled and cried,
I puked and I crawled;
Walked to school as a girl,
And played with toys and dolls;
As a teen I enjoyed my journey,
And learned to love and cry;
I have met sixteen junctions:
Year by year I reach one,
I took sixteen years to reach-
To reach sixteen memorable ones;
I continue my journey of life
Till I reach my final destination!
