Don't assure me that everything will be okay;
Tell me it's fine if you had cried.
Don't tell me that it's important to win;
Tell me it's good that you tried.
Let me know that sometimes you too feel;
That your world is falling apart and it's no big deal.
Don't tell me fight hard or else you will fail;
Tell me it requires a little more effort and you will sail.
Give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light;
Instead of pointing if I am doing wrong or right.
Don't tell me why and how I went astray;
Tell me you will reach your destination even if you stray.
Don't tell me future is tough and hard;
And dare not teach me how to play my cards.
Let me fall and rise and learn;
For all that is ever, in my small life, I can earn.
