School life

By- Dr. Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar, Kolkata

I know not, nothing strange;
I feel not, nothing a new;
I bother not, nothing of ages;
I gather not, nothing of value;
I hesitate not, nothing worse to wear;
I built not, nothing about future;
I construct not, nothing about career;
I design not, nothing about life;
I carve nothing, nothing about achievement;
‘m just a warrior, warrior of my school days;
‘m just an architect, architecture of my life;
As easy as I were, drawing few steps
Enthralled by those witchy books, fascinating!

I make not, nothing special of the day;
I ride not, nothing new of my walk;
I carry not, nothing heavy else of my bag load;
I drive not, nothing lighter of my feet;
I climb not, nothing better of my jump;
I speed not, nothing faster of on paddy bund;
I delighted not, nothing worrier on rainy day;
‘m crazier not, nothing more of my rubber shoes;
‘m just a warrior, warrior of my school days;
‘m just an architect, architecture of my life;
As easy as I were, drawing few steps
Enthralled by those witchy books, fascinating!

I reach not, nothing likely than less travel road;
I wave not, nothing heavier my feet underwater;
I perceive not, nothing more of my periods;
I apprehend not, nothing worst thunder and lightning;
I understand not, nothing more of my short round skirt;
I heed not, nothing carefully of my small meal;
I obey not, nothing sincere of my mother’s nature;
‘m just a warrior, warrior of my school days;
‘m just an architect, architecture of my life;
As easy as I were, drawing few steps
Enthralled by those witchy books, fascinating!

I behold not, nothing more of my brother;
I survey not, nothing important of my brother’s act;
I agree not, nothing else of my quietness;
I study not, nothing more of other friends’ attitudes;
I considered not, nothing only myself;
I witness not, nothing of beatings;
I have no proof, nothing of my innocents;
I spot not, nothing closer of my same position;
‘m just a warrior, warrior of my school days;
‘m just an architect, architecture of my life;
As easy as I were, drawing few steps
Enthralled by those witchy books, fascinating!
