"Standing tall"


There is a change in me which you would be seeing,

My moods keep varying as I am a teen,

Poetry is something, to do, I am so keen,

But you can’t understand me as I am not a Human being,

But I didn’t really mean to be mean,

There is certainly something abnormal in my genes,


I’m shouting out in depths of nowhere,

Don’t dare to provoke me while I’m here,

Because whatever I say, you wouldn’t even care,

But have decency in you to hear what I’m going to share,

I’m hotter than sun so kindly beware,

Look deeper inside where I’ve cried my tears,

Is it all I’m yelling in the air?

You gonna be shocked and tear off your hairs,


They can’t understand me at all,

My only friend is man in the mirrors on the wall,

I’m not Mr. Friendly and I clear it to you all, 

You don’t realize that every tear is a waterfall,

In the end you’ll be down and will found me,

On top of you still Standing tall.
