Oh What A Day...

Oh what a day,
What a day was today,
Not a moment did I have peace,
Only the time to pray.

Till the moment,
I came to know my fate,
There was just no stopping,
My quickened heart-beat rate.

Would it be easy?
Would it be what I want?
I wish there were no such questions
Hard as I try, stop them I can't.

Till I enter the court,
To hear my verdict,
I have no idea what my fate is,
I don't want to try and predict.

Each second that passes,
Feels like a lifetime,
My mind is now so blank,
I can't hear the nearby churchbells chime.

I hear my name called,
And turn my head around,
As I follow my friend's footsteps,
Now I can't hear any sound.

There maybe comforting voices,
Wishing me good luck,
I return their smiles with one of my own,
Only I know where my mind is stuck.

I enter the court last,
It is my choice that decides,
Easy known or difficult unknown,
On my hand my fate rides.

I pick up the paper,
Open it to see my fate,
And oh thank u God,
It reduced my heart rate.

It is one I know well,
I can do it with ease,
I sit down to write it,
Tension now starts to cease.

At long last it is over,
I am victorious in my quest,
Now that I succeeded,
I can now just rest.

(reminiscences of the hour before i entered lab for the exam..)
