Alone I Write

Alone I came into this planet

Reviving hopes of my parents

Bringing along with me a reason

For them to thrive in this earthly prison


Alone I stayed at my house

Reaping the sins of my parents

Creating unacceptable reasons

For them to raise me in this earthly prison

Alone I walked from school everyday

Trying to fulfill the dreams of my parents

Expecting to give everyone a reason

For them to sustain me in this earthly prison


Alone I moved away from my nest

Destroying the expectations of my parents

Forging impossible new reasons

For me to navigate alone in this earthly prison


Alone I cried

Wanting to see my parents

Needing them to give me a reason

For me to reach them from this earthly prison


Alone I died

Before my parents

Without any reason

For me to leave them behind in this earthly prison
