Written By Sumati Varma (Grade 9)

She hid from the world, 

In her own insecurities she curled. 

Kept inside her own thoughts, 

An image her mind would always cross. 

An image of her, 

About what people’s assumptions were. 

Assumptions about her flaws, 

Or the darkness within herself she draws. 

But no one see’s it, 

That she is losing herself bit by bit. 

Because she covers the truth, 

By her external looks and age of youth.

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.

Sometimes all you want to 
Is disappear,
But deep down...

Beneath Judgements

In the realm of shadows, where silence weeps,
A soul enchained, where pain runs deep,
A gentle spirit, shunned and cast aside...

The Darkened Blue

Sometimes all you want to do

But deep down...
