Experience vs idealism

Growing up he told her

We come alone, we live alone and we go alone.

Ever since he told her that

she set out to prove him wrong

minute after minute

day after day

months passed and years did too

but everyday she failed.

She cried at nights

knowing she wants to share her pain

but realizing that she has hundreds of people around

but still alone

that was the moment she cried harder

not because she was alone

but because she was proved wrong again.

He’d said

we come alone, we live alone and we go alone. 

After crying herself to sleep

the next day she again stood tall and said

I’ll prove him wrong.

It’s been 22 years now.

She’s fighting experience with idealism

but she has faith she says

and he says he has white hair.
