Each time my eyelids kiss as that of the shutter of a camera
Silence mourned by my presence in this classroom
I know I am awake but deep in the abyss of my cerebrum
I am highly volatile! I can feel my heart screeching to a grueling halt!
It is that period of the college life where everything boils down
All the late night parties clubbed with hangover halts at class
I know I’ll make it through the placement season with untamed colors
But I am highly volatile! I can feel my heart screeching to a grueling halt!
As a small town lad supplemented with the expectation of family
I am the first of my kin to make it so far into a susceptible world
All I knew until now was two wheelers, bullock carts and government buses
I know I am highly volatile! I can feel my heart screeching to a grueling halt!
Nine long months upon a 6X4 water bed with a broken pelvic bone
I was shattered to the core of my soul, love you mom and dad
The moral support induced in my heart will last for an eternity
I am still highly volatile! I can feel my heart screeching to a grueling halt!
All odds against my survival as that of a lone ship in a storm
Each day as I looked out of the window adjacent to my water bed
I wondered how beautiful it would be to have a normal life back again
I knew at that moment that i was highly volatile! I could feel my heart screeching to a grueling halt!
I knew I had the zeal in me but how could i console a weeping soul
Anesthetics and pain killers were a part of my daily diet as inseparable souls
Remembering the induced moral support I graduated with silver medal in my batch
I was highly volatile! My heart could have come to a grueling halt!
Half a dozen capsules, quarter a dozen tablets
I was on my way to join the top company in my specialization
Transformed with the love of mom and dad
I may be highly volatile! My heart may come to a grueling halt any moment!
One year down the line as a trainee followed with another year at office
I had a unfulfilled dream, a dream to pursue higher education
I am a privileged individual for I had the opportunity to make it to PG
At the back of mind, I know I am volatile!
After eighteen unforgettable months I am becoming volatile
My volatility knows no boundary and I am beginning to feel the heat
I am hopeful of a better living but more importantly a better opportunity
For I may not be all that privileged, I know I’ll be volatile!!
