What a World We Live In

What a World We Live In by Anushka Khowala

What a world we live in
Where you’re criticised if you speak your mind
Where you’re bullied if you have a double chin
Where peace is hard to find
Where you’re only acceptable if your waist is thin

What a world we live in
Where depression is “just a phase”
Where no happiness is left within
Where we’re all stuck in a maze
Where kindness is a sin

What a world we live in
Where mental health is ignored
Even when someone slits their skin
Where suicidal teens are “just bored”
Where their pain is hidden with a grin

What a world we live in
Where there’s absolutely no awareness
Let’s throw hatred in the bin
And stop being careless
Make love win

My name is Anushka Khowala. I am just a teenager from India, not a professional writer. Writing for me is just a way to release all tension and stress building up within.

The reason I chose to share my writing with the world is that I hope to build a community of readers who are unable to put their feelings to words and can relate to what I write.

So thank you to everyone who reads my work and supports me.
