The very beginning

by RajaRajeshwari Arenga

let me start from the very beginning
there came this time in my life
when I was hit, yeah just plain hit
by an avalanche of “rhyming” thoughts
that used to keep me awake at nights
compelled me to write they did
these thoughts, they followed me every where
through most of school and all through college
never a moment of peace or quiet
they burned and churned inside, growing and gnawing
till one day I decided to give in
and write I did, as the words poured out
there was no stopping now!
