The Wall welcomes an extremely talented girl on board, Dayita Panicker. Read and understand her and her story. Also, this would be the first poem to be posted here.
Understand. And Love.
We’re here. And we care.
Tell me the truth,
Please don’t ask why.
Make up tales,
Hold back giggles
Cause that never fails.
Cover your face,
Put on a fake smile,
Hide all the fear,
Behind your lies.
Bury your pain,
Within your bones
To show you’re sane,
And made of stones.
Don’t dare to speak out your dreams,
Keep doing what you’re told
And hold back your screams.
Hope and pray,
You lose your sight,
Cause after all you’re giving up
Without a fight.
Until one day you lose your mind,
Break your chains,
And tear your binds.
You feel the rage and sorrow within,
More at yourself for you have sinned
You try to turn back and go,
To the moment you gave up hope,
But it’s much harder to do than say,
“I would’ve done things differently that day.”
You’re back again at the start,
A second chance,
A work of art.
You know your choice
Just say it loud,
I have my dreams, of which I’m proud.
I know it’s hard, I know you’re scared,
But it’s now or never,
You’re either alive or dead.
Call this your second shot,
Not many get a life once it’s lost.
The pain is there to keep you going,
I promise it ends, Don’t give up without knowing.
Life is hard… It’s supposed to be
If everyone jumped,
who would be left to see..
The joy that comes, after the pain,
No hardships, means no gain.
So hold on for just a while longer.
I promise, this will only make you stronger.
