Photo Bombaying and Iris Poetry Prints: A collaboration

I, for the longest time that I have known myself, Have lived inside me. With twinkling eyes and a sunshine smile, I have drunk sorrows and walked alone a thousand miles. I have been expressive, To what people could hear and accept, And provide unsolicited advice. I have craved for love, even when I thought I had it all, And trust when I say, Nothing’s lonelier than that disgraceful fall. I have wiped my tears before coming out of locked rooms, Never because I wanted to pretend strong, But to rekindle courage for myself, To assert that I too belong. I was called ambitious and even though I was Until one day my ambitions felt halfway lost. I was smiling, Making people laugh, But I was also silently crying in my heart. I ensured to keep the sanctity of human life alive, For death couldn’t have come easy. And surely, wasn’t an option upon which I could thrive. My head’s a mess, I am a mess. Moody. Fluctuating. Overthinking stress. But the heart was determined, To reflect courage, live for thy self and nothing less. Because I am my own caterpillar, Growing, even when I don’t see. They despise me today, maybe I don’t like myself much, But one day, the world shall be a little prettier because of me!
