The Reason

Written By Sumati Varma (Grade 9)

Unaffected but some call it heartless,
Calm but they say we’ve been pulled into the darkness.
We are rebellious, emotionless, careless
Ever thought why we are so tearless?

Nothing is endless, nothing lasts forever,
That is why, we never
Never show emotions, never do we cry,
Never, until the day we die.

What is the reason to this, you may ask,
That being that in the past, we did unmask.
Unmask all our insecurities and showed our true-selves to everyone,
And that was when it all begun,
That is when from our emotions we started to run.

The world didn’t accept us for who we are
All our life, all our emotions had turned into nothing but a tormenting scar.
One that reminded us that we are not welcome, that we are not enough,
One that reminded us that we have to be though.

Tough because in this world, we had exhausted the emotions given to us,
When we tried to reason how we felt, tried to only discuss.
Discuss the emotions that we once felt,
The emotions that now no longer exist because of the way the world and society is dealt.

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.


Solitude’s Search

Alone versus loneliness, two sides of a coin,
One a peaceful state, the other a mournful groan.
I'm sitting here, alone in my room...

Beneath the searing summer sun,
My friends and I studied one by one,
Gripping our pens with razor-sharp minds...

Time Flies By

Was it a dream?
Or, was I not alive?
Everything went by...
