You Are Fine by Shaurya Gupta

giving up, it just isn’t an option

after this hard work, losing courage

all of this, turned to waste

you just can’t keep doing this

feeling separate

going away

don’t worry

there are more like you

you aren’t different

why are you crying

you are strong

these tears

don’t make them fall

you aren’t made of glass

you can’t shatter

but, remember

you can always heal
