Memento


frightening, the stage was
there, when, people were looking
at you of regard, high
as the spotlight dazzling
one, for not all have the chance
to redeem themselves, worthy
of a rounded silver plate
hanging on my neck.

Written for dVerse. Receiving medals were some of the highlights of my student years. The medals are the memento of my early success.

    That’s how a winner can feel on the rostrum after all of the vigorous training. Very true!
