“After You” by Providence Wright

When the world disappoints
And friends leave,
Putting my joy in abyss,
When families cast out
And mother hens forget their chicks,
I will run after you.

When the world celebrates
And friends stay,
Turning my mournings to comfort,
When families feed
And the mother hens offer shelter,
Still, I will run after you.

When the society abandons
And the street, our home,
Transforming our innocence to guilt.
When we grow in disdain
And feed off crumbs
We will run after you.

When the society embraces
And sends us to schools,
Moulding our clay to ceramic.
When we blossom in the sky
And provide solution to centers,
Still, we will run after you.

When good and bad meet
And crossroads argue,
Making a platform for pain and joy.
When all starts and ends
And forgetfulness is the totality of life,
I will run after you.
