We don’t speak,
In no way it means we can’t speak.
We listen to you,
In no way it means you needn’t listen to us.
We, sometimes, bear the pain inflicted by you,
In no way it means we can’t do the same to you.
We cry silently because of you,
In no way it means that you keep doing it to us.
We have so much to say,
We have so many dreams,
We have so many expectations.
We stay quiet so you don’t get hurt,
We sacrifice our dreams so that you can fulfil yours,
We have expectations because you mean something to us.
You know, sometimes or many times
We think and we think
Why do we do this?
What are we getting?
Why we allow you to do it?
Do we deserve it?
No answer pops up.
Maybe the only thing that drives us is
That you mean something to us.
Maybe someday you too will realise it.
Maybe someday we will get a chance to fulfil our dreams
Maybe someday we will love and respect each other equally.
We survive in the hope of,
