The familiar and the unknown

The familiar roads leading to the familiar place
Will now pave way to the never-been-on routes leading to an unknown place.

The familiar walls and corridors and staircases
Will now be a steel elevator taking me to the ‘yet’ unknown.

Those jokes, that laughter, those people I called friends
From co-workers to being friends, will have to start again.

The comfort of leaving behind the familiar
Competing with the anxiety of facing the unknown.

But who am I kidding?
Wasn’t the familiar, once unknown too?

Challenging and exploring and making friends with the unknown
Is on my to-do list now.


  1. Good luck with your new job, Naina. Wishing you loads of success.

  2. And you will rock at it Naina.
    All the best :)

  3. All the best for the unfamiliar. I am sure you will make it familiar soon :)

  4. rightly said that the familiar was unknown once
    the same feeling makes me feel good some timees
    good luck
