How does it feel
when you do not attain the one thing
you know you deserve,
that you strived hard for,
for which you made sacrifices,
for which you implored God?

Yet it falls into
the laps of the undeserving,
who takes it for granted,
who does not cherish its gravity.
How would you feel?
I would resent him.

The author's comments:

Due to reservation for lower castes in India, my peers got into better colleges than me even though I was definitely more deserving. I worked so hard for it and yet I could not get the college of my dreams. It shattered me.
