1 universe, 9 planets,
7 continents, 7 seas,
204 countries, 809 islands,
7 billion people in this world,
yet you’re here reading
this strange-sounding piece
of writing on this website,
a story about me.


i. they know my name but not my story.
nothing’s impossible
once it has been learnt,
but learning often takes
much more than a day’s work.
they call it talent
and sometimes that hurts.
late nights unrecognised,
it’s not my hard work.

ii. they hear my performance but not my practice.
i play my melody
and they don’t listen,
yet i never seem to get
the silence i earn.
they scream and they shout
and i cover my ears
with dreams of the future,
what it’ll be in ten years.

iii. they see my smile but not my pain.
the jury decides what is wrong
and what’s right,
but sometimes the truth
never comes out to light.
the stars they all rise up,
the monsters they slay.
maybe someday i’ll rise too
but it won’t be today.

iv. they can read my lips but not my mind.
drowning in my thoughts
are the things that i yearn,
but lost in translation
my words left unheard.
they roll the dice,
i wait my turn
the fire is spreading
and inside i burn.
i’d be surprised if anyone understands this because it’s heavily metaphorical and personal.
