TELL ME WHY

Tell me why_blog2

 

Tell me why

Why you sit in the shadows

When the light is right in front of you

 

Why you choose to fade away

When you can shine

Brighter than the stars in the sky

 

Why you wither away

When you can bloom

And stay beautiful like the rose flower in my garden

 

Tell me why

Why you choose to hide your true self

Just to fit into the ideology of another

 

Tell me why

Why you hunger for toxic pills

Pills that steal your youth and innocence

 

Tell me why

Why you choose to be lost

When you can be found and safe

 

Tell me why

I’m trying not to cry

Cos’ I see waste

A pretty flower

Hidden behind dark curtains

A pretty flower in torment

A beautiful flower you are

Yet you choose not to bloom

Please, tell me why!
