“Is there a world with splendid creation 
Where one could be looked upon with admiration? 
Is there a haven from the world’s frustration 
Where peace and war have no relation?” 
When children with pure hearts asked about this nation 
God replied, “It all depends on your imagination.” 
The little ones filled with a sense of optimism 
Started looking for this mysterious location, 
Alas, their journey didn’t lead to such a destination. 
Feeling shattered that despite their dedication 
No place was found that fulfilled their aspiration, 
The little angels asked again their question. 
God smiled, urging them to explore their imagination, 
And make a world of their own creation.

Shambhavi Priya

It is hard to tell people about yourself because you fear their perception of you would be different from how you perceive yourself. On this note, let me introduce myself. I am Shambhavi Priya, a teenager just like anyone else, quite excited about turning 17 in a few days. I am studying in grade 12 and aspire to be a professor in zoology. I love singing and writing along with playing the piano, cooking and painting. I am elated about sharing my thoughts with you through my poem. May the words be soul igniting, your days be exciting, and your thoughts keep inciting. Happy writing!
