GEMS Journey

Poetry, Writer life

Red, Green, Yellow, Blue,
Little colorful candies,
Oh, how I loved them!
They are heaven in the taste buds,
Gotta thank Cadbury for that.

So when daddy told me GEMS,
Graded English Media School,
Wasn’t what I though of.
I imagined Hansel & Gretel stories
A fairy tale kinda building.

But then came the admission test,
Tall buildings that I got lost in,
Made of bricks not chocolates,
Scary looking invigilators,
Oh, how my childish dream shattered!

To my greatest surprise I got in,
And twelve-year journey began.
Met friends like families,
Shared stories, made memories,
Explored every nook & cranny.

From laps around football ground,
To faking sickness in basketball court,
Anything to get out of ECA,
Oh damn, those were the days!
Truly better than GEMS chocolate.
