My medals

Written by: Irfana Ali Bhat

Looking at the mirror....

I saw some lines,

some strands of grey.....

I panicked

but when i looked

again keenly.......

My heart got

filled with warmth

I thought

These are the medals

bestowed on me

by my life........

They are the signs

that day by day

I am richer

with experiences,

with knowledge,

with love,

Thinking about this

I smiled at my reflection

Fixed my attire

and walked off

with a confidence,I never had before...
