Lost
and
Found
 
 Edge
of
the
Forest

 by
Varun
Malkani

 
 At
the
edge
of
a
forest
I
stand
 Without
any
clear
path
to
take.
 People
trying
to
show
me
the
way
 Even
though
this
is
my
path
to
make.
 
 Like
a
car
in
cruise
control

 I
feel
forced
in
one
direction.
 My
life
should
be
my
own
journey

 And
not
decided
by
election.
 
 My
mind
has
now
become
a
blender
 As
my
own
goal
is
mixed
in
with
another.
 I
sort
through
them
to
do
what
I
want
 But
I
feel
I
have
to
do
what
they
prefer.
 
 Like
a
drop
of
rain

 In
a
sea
of
pressure,
 I
am
no
longer
certain
 And
I
feel
quite
insecure.
 
 But
just
as
the
sun
emerges
 From
a
grey
and
rainy
day,
 I
know
that
I
must
follow
my
heart
 If
I
ever
want
to
find
my
way.
 
 
 
 Questions
 
 1. Are
the
metaphors
unclear
or
ineffective?
 2. Are
the
similes
unclear
or
ineffective?
 3. Is
the
structure
too
inconsistent?
 4. Is
the
rhyme
scheme
effective?
 5. Have
you
ever
felt
the
same
way
as
the
speaker?
