“Once upon a time” (part 1) by Saroop Chattopadhyay. This English poem was written by me during my college life, how I faced challenges, how I became depressive and how I overcome it with the help/direction of a saint. This “Once upon a time” is a series of poetry related to my life I will publish all in my blog one by one.

Once upon a time – 1

                      By Saroop Chattopadhyay written on 11-10-98, when he was student.

Once upon a time when I tried
                To get up and fell down,
I thought I would always fail
                So I became hopeless and dull.

Once upon a time when I was hopeless
                Then at a glance,
I get back my confidence
                And got some chance.

Once upon a time when I got some chance
                Then a question arose in my mind,
Which is the best one?
                And I became worried.

Once upon a time when I was worried
                I meet with a Saint,
And concluded my worries
                With faith in God.

Finally when a chance was taken
              With confidence and in the name of God,
Then I succeed and became
              The happiest man in the world.
