Where have you been,
For such a long time?
I’ve longed to be seen,
All through our life.

Time comes to a pause,
As you mirror my ways.
All your societal laws,
Cringe & cease to stay.

I’m not a reflection,
You see in the mirror.
I’m your hesitation,
An inborn error.

But you only inhale,
As much air as they say.
I’m vital to your tale,
Yet you let me fade away.


Don’t suffocate your differences for the sake of their acceptance. Before seeking it in others, learn to accept yourself.

Your differences don’t limit your chances of having a good life. The only possible hindrance to a happy life is aping others & not acknowledging things that make you who you are.

      Yes, because if we don’t accept ourselves then no one else will.
