You Never Walk Alone.

Surrounded by people full of smiles, he borrowed a mask and did as was expected.

All his emotions bottled up, he was slowly drowning.

Going in circles, he was losing his mind.

Then he stumbled upon six more like him.

After a moments notice he knew he’d found what’s been missing.

The friends he’d wanted and the brothers he didn’t know how much he needed.

Her.

She thought heartbreak was the worst she’d face,

When depression came knocking.

Fingers crossed, hoping it was a phase,

Then the light disappeared, with anxiety blocking.
All seemed lost and time went too fast,

She just wanted to leave the city,

A while after, a weight lifted, past was past,

And she found serendipity.

Love Yourself.

After what seemed like forever,

A  light appeared.

All ties had been severed,

Hope was near.
No longer held down by her fears,

She was finally serene.

No more puffy eyes, no more tears,

She’d reached beyond the scene.

Serendipity.

Caught in a lie,

Her first love struggled. 

Surprised by her own reflection,

She was finally awake.

She could now begin,

Put aside her stigma.

Sunshine indeed came after darkness,

Listening to his mixtape.

Back Then and Now.

​Back when the days were long and the trees were young,

A woman with dreams was repressed and sold in the name of marriage.

And millenniums since the same occurs, while all state humans to be free.

The beginning and The end.

​You. You’ve changed everything.

You came into my life like an unexpected drizzle and helped me get through every storm.

You were my everything.

You were my moon, shining in the dark giving me light.

Little did I know then that I was just one little star among your others.

I would’ve given you the world, but now I’m glad I didn’t, because I know you would’ve left me in the ditch and travelled with her.

In the end the light drizzle which provided me comfort, turned into the hurricane that would damage me beyond repair.

I’m broken for eternity as I still find hardship in letting you go.

You are still and will always be the source of my life and the means to it’s end.

With Time.

​Shamed because of her opinions, her race , her size, her face.

Shamed by strangers, by apparent friends, by other and by family.

She who once saw her obstacles as a phase.

Was now hiding in plain sight aimlessly.

With time, all the unusual stereotypes grew on her.

Not long enough.

​The sun had just started to rise,

He’d been up a while, looking at his child’s mother,

thinking how his decision was indeed wise.

It had always been her and no other.
They’d been luckier than most he knew,

but he was still sad, it all happened so fast.

Memories without her in his mind were few,

But he craved for more, as the pain in his chest told him this would be his last.

Yet again.

​”Don’t look back. The past is dangerous and you have to live in the present.” Her mind whispered.

But all she could hear was her heart beating in the rhythm of their song, and in the blink of an eye, she gave up her future to live in the past with him.
