Last time, I was excited to reach my destination;

Singing and dancing with joy, I packed my suitcase without any hesitation.

Though, when the year began and I started walking;

My expectations waned with my every step,

My desires blew away in a dark smoke

& there I stood alone on my path like an extinguished candle without any hope!

.

I was prepared for sunshine & rainbow.

I aspired to smile and have peace.

I hoped for loving memories & interesting anecdotes tasting like delectable chocolates and sweets!

.

As my footprints marked the road,

Regrets got imprinted on my mind.

I should have brought strong boots for the rough streets;

I should have brought a raincoat & an umbrella for the storm;

But most importantly, I should have understood that

Cold weathers are necessary to realize the importance of warmth!

.

Now, as I stand near my suitcase to pack once again, for the New Year and a new journey ahead.

I decide to carry tenacity with my care-freeness,

I make sufficient space for patience and graciousness,

I take out anger and resentment to replace the empty space with optimism and contentment.

.

With this, I have finally packed my suitcase for 2022.

Hoping to enjoy all the phases of my expedition with every move.

I don’t know how my journey will turn around,

But I will never get an answer if I just keep standing on the ground!
