The Nothing in Me

The Nothing in Me

A Poem by Shweta Shah

The Rantings of My Nothingness...

In a world 
Where everyone knows what they want in life, their purpose,
I am still wandering and lost

In a world
Where there is no such thing as normal as everybody's idea of normal is different,
I want to be okay with abnormal

In a world 
Where everybody is trying to make a dent in the universe, make their mark,
I want to be invisible and hide in the shadows

In a world
Where weird is always rejected and people feel left out,
I want to be accepting

In a world
Where everyone is finding their true love and soulmate
I want to be happy on my own with myself

In a world
Where extraordinaire is always rewarded and hustle is encouraged,
I want to appreciate the routine, relaxation, healing and self-growth

In a world
Where the best story and portrayal wins, verity or lies does not matter,
I want to search for the truth

In a world 
Which constantly strives to express how happy they are
I want to live in the moment and treasure it

In a world
Infatuated with the impossible beauty standards
I want to have enchanting conversations and embrace a beautiful soul

In a world
That constantly strives to be something
I want to be nothing
