Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘Isolated tears converge

in the rain.’ We keep falling

on our knees. Screaming for

mercy. No one’s ever listening.

No one’s ever near when the

tough melts into gravity. It’s

only when we rise that they’ll

head our way. It’s only when

we’re smiling that they’ll ever

remember our names.
