Stay

And as you grow up, you realize

That there are times, when

The person whom you love,

The things which you love,

Are the source of your sadness,

Sickness,

Madness,

Insecurity,

Anxiety

But you love them

So you stay anyway

Try

He’s been trying so hard

He tries to exist in this world

By going to a crowded place

Where everyone talks, no one listens

He’s been trying so hard

He tries to fill his quite world

By saying things he doesn’t mean

Which everyone believes, no one questions

He doesn’t have to try so hard

He tries to make his heart beating again

By following every beat he hears

From his headphone, not theirs

—DNP

One Thing

To you who’ve been living in the space for these past few years,

May you find it

That one thing

Which allows you to live peacefully

Which lets you sleep safely and soundly

Which keeps you sane and grounded

—DNP

Allow

We don’t say what we want nor what we feel

Because we don’t  know how to say it

Because we are afraid of their reaction

Because we don’t  want to hurt them

Because we are afraid of their judgment

Most importantly,

Because we are not allowed to
