• N.One.

This insightful prose is a reflection on who we are as sentient beings and essential to living a more fulfilled life and very true. Having the courage to stand alone is the one thing that no one can do for us. 🙂


Life is short to be ignored. Senseless!
To the lost crowd, you are too lifeless
To your own you’re not their business
You lie by yourself without happiness

We have the need to love somebody
And the need to someone to love us
Rather, ‘growth’ is hard for everyone
But it’s even harder to grow up alone

To you, you are a real precious soul
To them, you are ‘still’ the unknown
To you, you are the gift, the present
To them, you’re simply non-existent

With a broken wing, is sink or swim
To you, you are everything and more
But forgot, for them, you never were
You are not, or will ever be anything
