|I WISH I WERE A BIRD
Birds are so lucky that they can fly
Up in the sky so high
They can see everything
From trees to ducklings
They can feel the fresh air there
But they don’t come down because of pollution here
They don’t have to study, they don’t take stress,
But we have thousand reasons to depress
They have to search for food
But we have so many restaurants to cherish our mood
I have never heard
A singer like a bird
Birds tell me your secrets of happiness,
We long for such gladness
I wish I were a bird like you
I could fly and sing like you.
Tanya Joshi (V-B)
Once, there was happiness
And now there’s only pain
A shame spreading through
The shame of my mistakes
Once, I was with my friends
Happiness on every end
I want to be with them
My family is chasing
Their time for me, facing
So much hard work
I don’t want to hurt them
Yet I want to be with my friends
I can’t lose my self
Yet I can’t lose them
I can’t lose myself
Yet I can’t lose my friends
I don’t know
On one road, there is joy but pain
On the other, there is pain and limited joy
I don’t know
Where will I go?
So hard to decide
Tears coming out my eyes
It’s so difficult
And it really hurts
My friends are like the last thing
That I am living on
The same is for my parents
Just staring at the world till it’s gone.

The most valuable thing for me is my family
Who made my life amazing and lovely
Lovable is my grandfather,
Emotional and worried for my future rather
My grandmother want us to be good,
By my side, she always stood.
My father always wants me to become popular
But I want to become like him, similar
My Mother is so significant and hold a great potential,
She is always altruistic and admiral
And my sister is like my second mom and best friend
Oh her, I was and will always depend
This is my family, a box of love and care,
You’ll find a family like mine very rare

Upon a mid-spring day,
Let’s take a glimpse at Nature’s way,
Breathe the scent of fresh air,
Feel the breeze within your hair.
Our physical world, respect and explore:
Where water meets land; a beautiful shore.
The grass will poke between your toes,
Smell the flowers with your nose.
Under the layer of the maturing sun,
Monkeys through their vines run.
Mountains we conquer, look down in awe;
If you are an artist, you should make sure you draw.
Look across the meadow way,
And you shall see a young deer play.
Know the sounds of water splash,
Catch its glimmer in a flash.
When altogether it seems sounds,
Lay yourself upon the ground.
Memories are nurtured, when nature reveals;
Sharing its pleasure, amazing it feels.
