It's Better

By Divya Parvatrao

PROMPT—Ask Me.

It's better to be lonely,

Than being in the crowd.

It's better to stay quiet,

Than explaining yourself.


Everyone is just around,

But no one is with us.

It's better to be alone and sad,

Than having people who never understand you.


People pretend to hear,

But they never care.

Everyone seems good,

But no one is the best.


No one can know you,

Better, than yourself.

No one will stay forever,

Everyone leaves someday or the other.
