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.
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.
