Crashing down

by Divya Parwani (18)
MGD Girl’s School, Jaipur

Hold me firm as I shatter,
For I only wish to be rescued,
From the reality that broke me into a zillion pieces, and my dreams.
Lend me yours,
To fulfil, if not mine.
Give me hope.
Mine died
From suffocating under the
Unjust decisions and irrationality.
Hold me firm as I shatter
For I wish to live and
Not lose the battle called life.
