We hide in the masses
Seeking to be found but not found out
Afraid of being alone,
We never want to show our true colours,
Afraid of being hurt,
We don’t allow ourselves to feel, Or try,
We hide beneath our skins,
A safe haven,
Our cocoons in which we
have carefully carved masks-
Portraying nothing but the fiercest marksmen.
Pulling a brave front,
For all those who look for weakness in our faces
the moment we set foot outside our doorsteps.
Yet, inside we are nothing but silky worms,
So soft and tender,
We build walls around us,
To see who wants to break them down.
Carefully spun, We make the finest silk threads,
but through life’s course,
We’ve had to break free from some of these cocoons.
In order to see what we could be If left to the sky!
To see how far we could flap our wings and
how high we’d go from all the momentum we’d gained.
Sometimes beauty lies not in perfection, but
in the things unseen, and
all the perfect discourses.
It’s in our differences, that we find the right way.
It’s in our weaknesses that we find our strengths
It’s only when we are able to stand alone,
That we can be able to help others stand on their own.
Only then, will we not just be living our lives,
We’ll be painting the sky with all the colours in the rainbow.
‘Cause together we’d look so colourful and bring hope,
To all those going through storms, and
someday, help them reach that pot of gold.
Dare to Dream!
In your coulourfull sleep,
Make sure there’s room for everyone!
