I have tears in my eyes and a severely broken heart as I write this. My student life is over forever. I’m done with my Masters degree from a reputed city college. And the only thing that I can think of is; all my friends are leaving. That feeling of loneliness is slowly creeping back into my life and mind.
“Don’t go” is the only thing I want to say to them, but I won’t. Two years was a very long and arduous time period thrown our way when we signed up for this Masters degree. We hated all the long hours of work, the sari tying at the drop of a hat, the partiality, the never ending internships, and the venom being spit around by certain women. Keeping all this in mind, I should have been the happiest person on the planet when all this ended.. but I’m not. I’m sad. I’m so incredibly sad I could write a poem and if I had taken my guitar classes seriously written a sad song as well.
Debby and Pri, you made me want to come to college every day. And the days you two bunked I hated going to college.
Neha and Nikki, you made me fall in love with long hours of gossip. It truly was therapeutic after a long and shitty day.
I pray our friendships never end. I pray circumstances and time don’t change us. I pray that we love each other unconditionally like we do right now, today.
