Written by Nikita Sethi
As the darkness seeped down into the innocent,
As you screamed out that danger was imminent,
“Keep me sane – keep me away from imprisonment,”
I watched the once soaring, fall.
I watched as your screams painted walls,
Walls that once held your dreams, but now it seems,
No one was listening to your call.
I watched when I should have acted.
My soul seeks forgiveness, for my heart was distracted.
In a time when I needed to be proactive,
I chose the wrong play to be reenacted.
So let me put down Hamlet, let’s turn our page,
This one’s for you, my soaring angel – time to take our place on stage.
