7th August - Poem by Rohit Sapra

A little boy was born on this very day
The morning seems so bright
I have opened all the windows of my room
The morning seems to have a light of hope.
Being born on 7th August makes me feel so proud
As so many great writers were born on this day
Even actors and actresses were born.
A thing which makes me happy is that I am a writer, who dreams of making it big
Maybe as a poet or I could even end up writing some great books.
Depression, fly away
Fly far away, even if for just this one day
I wish to be happy today
Do not wish to cry or even be sad today
Just want to live, at least for once
On this very day I was born.
A dreamer, I have turned out to be
A lover I hope to be in future
A writer I am and that is all I got to aim at
As they say if you work hard, dream big then success is sure
I will succeed, even though I have not got the good looks
Still, I have got a brain which fortunately functions as well
I dream and think of beautiful thoughts
To create something meaningful as it is my purpose of life
This very day I was born
Then I was a little boy, very chubby and dimples always appeared on my face
Even now I am chubby and some say that I even look cute
So, I guess that is a compliment
7th August, describes me, then I was a little boy who has grown big.
