One Reason Why

Based on Bestselling Book and Netflix American Drama T.V Series, 13 Reasons Why

I just lived my nightmare,

Through a box of tapes,

Chasing secrets everywhere,

There are no escapes,

Could I do this to Hannah, would I dare,

Reveal what she wants to keep between few,

By recording a tape of my nightmare,

I could be giving out a clue,

Now I press record,

To tell you what I have before me,

To show you the ignored,

This is my story,

I let my body take over, and

I press play, 

Now i’m ready to stand,

Here’s what I have to say:

If you are listening to this, to me,

I’ve decided that my thoughts will talk,

You will see that this is the key,

To a door of secrets about to unlock,

Hannah left this tape for me,

Saying I was one of the reasons of her death,

The next tape will be of our relationship,

The next tape will take away my breath,

So as I listen,

I relive all those moments,

As they pass away before my vision,

I am left forever in debt,

After living through my horror,

I am left shattered,

And I have to tell you the unspoken,

That I left this relationship broken,

Never will I let this happen again,

And never should you,

Now I carry this unliftable burden,

And I can’t face what’s true,

This is where I end this cassette,

I hope you know what I meant,

Don’t make a mistake you will regret,

Don’t walk the path that I went.

This is my first collaboration with a good friend, Kimaya Deshpande. Oh, it was truly an adventure working with her…hope you like it! Here is a link to her website:

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
