Let Me Be

Written By Sumati Varma (Grade 9)


What have I done? 

Why do I feel like every second I’m being targeted by a gun?

No one ever listens 

Then what is the use of this population of millions? 

I need to know 

Why do all my feelings and emotions you throw? 

I have a life too I have a whole journey left to go through 

So please, let me be 

Or at least tell me 

What can I do to let myself free?

Hi, I’m Sumati Varma and I’m a 14 year old ambivert. I have a soft spot when it comes to art, especially poetry and highly respect authors. My poetry usually comes from the darker, deeper aspect of life. My thought process and writings come from people who are suffering or are in pain but can’t find the words to express themselves. So I thought maybe I can do it for them.
