Ph.D.

This is a poem about the journey through PhD. The different phases that one has to pass through before he/she can graduate. Its just for fun.

 

With hope of grandeur feat

And expectations that no one can meet

Celebrating the moment with a tweet

A journey began to become an elite

Unknown about the misery and pain

With a smile, I boarded the train

Who knows how long the smile will last

The time sped away really fast

 

Before I could realize

I began to criticize

What is PhD?

Is it Permanent head Damage

Or is it Please hire, Desperate

Even our Parents have Doubts

And there is nothing to be sure about.

 

Every day is the same story

Yet nowhere close to glory

Giving a seminar

is like waging a war

Covered with verbal scars

I finally entered the bar

Hailing abuses all over

Decides to become a drover.

 

Slowly drowning in alcohol

And putting an end to the brawl

Receding back to my dungeon

I fall like a martyr

Only to realize

The war is not yet over

A new ray awaits at the dawn

Go catch it, before it’s gone

You are born to fight

Don’t be afraid, you’re the knight.

Vulnerability

Vulnerability can be one’s strength. It reflects the capability of being wounded or hurt but you also gain strength by enduring sufficient pain and when its full to the brim, you decide enough is enough. Ability is embedded in the word vulner’ability’, so basically it is your ability to deal with the hardship in your own unique way.

The origin of vulnerability and vulnerary comes from the same Latin word vulner-vulnus. Vulnerary is something which is used to heal wounds. So going by the origin, being vulnerable is the ‘ability’ to guard your fort against all evils and cure yourself from all the diseases that plague you.

So be vulnerable, be strong.
