#atozchallenge - Becoming

There are few moments, unnoticed
Moments when a lie is easy, but truth is spoken
When shrugging is easy, but responsibility is taken
Moments insignificant in what happens
But leave a mark on the hearts
Moments which get forgotten in oblivion
But weave a story remembered even in Elysium
Stories which become yore when retold
Stories which mark the Becoming of a man

  1. Another super poem, Piyush! It reminds me of a saying (this is paraphrasing), "The true measure of a man's character is how he acts when no one is looking."

  2. Beautiful. Especially loved the concluding lines :)
