That thing we all crave for,

acceptance, validation

Call it what you will


That wisp of affection

That shapes our realities

I craved, till I caved


The darkness in my heart

I survived and lit my skies

With lanterns of hopes


Empty words, I filled

As I willed

Till they breathed life


In them I found a life

They ended my strife

With me


Behold, mirror to my soul

I hold

I see some scars


There is pain in me

And a little bit of vanity

But its not ugly


Somewhere in twilight,

Between my fears and wits,

I grew up.
