You say you know me best
but I say you don't
you say you know my secrets
but I think you have never known.

To know me
to find me in the crowd
you must forage the stars
that lay beneath fiery clouds.

To understand me
you must collect my tears everyday
like perforated seashells
scattered near the bay.

To know my secrets
you must rid me of my pain
help me smile when I should cry
help me become sane.

You don't know me
because I know that no one, in the end,
would waste their time
to become by friend.

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!!

  2. this was really beautiful. and it is okay to feel the way you feel, for the world is such. but still, there’s hope.
    and I’d like to just add, if you ever need someone, to talk to about whatever, I shall be just a text away.
    wishing you the best, sweet one. 🙂
