Riddle was her situation
Dilemma every child faces,
Options are wide
But the selection is tough,
Puzzled eyes unable to find right path
Listened to all advices with patience
But became speechless when asked…
State of mind was not in tune
Probably undergoing incubation period,
It appeared burdensome task to her
Began criticizing tedious policy,
System that prevailed since ages
Obstacle every student must have faced.
Only one stream to opt between
Science, Commerce and Arts,
Tough decision to make
How would a little child know,
What is she actually good at?
Sometimes liking towards teacher
Lured her to like the subject too.
Not even aware topic she is fond of
At times performed extracurricular activities,
Also persuaded by parents.
But time was scarce
Final date for admission would wait for none,
She finally chose the stream
Suggested by the rest…
Pathetic was her condition in those days
Behaved like a dumb girl,
Battle of mind and emotion
Neurons hardly worked…
But she had to choose….
Whom to blame????
The system or the society???
Or her inability to know own potential???
