I used to be scared by
the expressions from others’ eyes
while they were looking at me.
I used to be worried by
the implications in others’ words
while they were speaking to me.
I used to be concerned by
the ideas of me in others’ brain
while they were “educating” me.
I used to refuse to open my heart since
others didn’t favor ME
and hated my uniqueness.
Then I took the first step, and second
to uproot from
the shades of others’ perspectives.
I opened the window
to inhale the calmness sent by sunrise
and to reveal the true happy self!
