Planned or dreaded?

She smiled past the weird
And past the unexpected.
She let go of the funny
Never once feeling dull.

She had changed a little too much
All too suddenly.
Gradual as it had seemed to her
They hoped the change was not real.

She however, hoped to stay just that way
With no other agenda from there on.
Reason when asked, she remained mum
Offering no rhyme or explanation, just staying strong.

Life, as it had come to her,
Had been taking too many twists & turns of late.
But as always, she remained thankful and hopeful for more
For who knows, everything has a potential of ending better than the planned, and worse than THE DREADED !!

Change but why?

An age undefinable,
A period unidentified,
Equations changed,
Without a clue, without being glorified.

Her ideals she wanted to wrap,
And throw them in the trash.
Her lessons she wanted to dump,
And term them ‘system crash’.

Maybe the world will never know the real reason,
But could she care less?
Maybe the world will mock on her actions,
But she had her own interests at the behest.

She was once proud of it all,
But now couldn’t detest the feeling more.
Once a champion of these situations,
Her heart now inconsistently wept like a drum roll.

Too much pain all around,
She chose what she had to.
Adorned a smile pretty to hide her tears,
The girl now determined THROUGH AND THROUGH.
