“Koshish” – A Try

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

She saw behind and he wasn’t there…

She searched everywhere, but it was despair

She called for help but could find no one to care

She was left with the green trees and darkness to stare


She welcomed the dawn with her lips quivering for water

Rain it was, which kissed her as if God had the answer

Slowly and steadily she stood up as the day turned brighter

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Her eyes hovered trying to find her lost shelter


It was a bad night and everything’s gonna be alright

She said to herself trying not to remember the fight

How her partner had hit and stamped her last night

But after that he left her here and that she thought was not right


She started to walk endlessly with the hope to get back

And to her joy she could feel she was reaching her track

Here she pondered and something held her tight

Which way to go was it the time to decide?


One led to the world which didn’t want her

The other went to a journey she always dreamt for

Quickly she covered her face with the silk scarf she wore

And started walking towards her dreams to never return she swore


With sky as the limit and confidence her friend

She started running without even knowing the end

Life had so many colours and yes she was ready to blend

She decided this is how her entire life she was going to spend


“Koshish” she called herself and erased her past from her mind

Her talents were enough to help her win and surely people were kind

Work was her worship and happiness her solace and both she twined

To keep herself alive from within and like a star she shined…
