Made It!


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Make It Anywhere.”

*******

I guess for this post I have  no option  but to turn

To a place in time when there seemed to be no return

One in hand, one inside, as from patients and books

I learned to learn – the scorching pace, the tired looks

The hurried days, the ” all-nighters”, the missing meals

 Deadlines to meet, the travails and yes laughter peals

As I gladly  put  my aching  head to a  soft pillow

I would suddenly sit up and think a thought, mellow.

——–

Had I felt the life inside today

Had I counted the kicks or

Had the hectic day robbed me 

Of savoring life that was going to be!

That made me think ever so often

“If I could make it here 

I’ll make it anywhere”

At last the day did come when

In my arms was a precious one

And a few days, nay, weeks later

A very  precious sheet of paper!!

If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,” goes the famous song about New York City. Is there a place — a city, a school, a company — about which you think (or thought) the same? Tell us why, and if you ever tried to prove that claim.
