They thought he was evil But they didn't see the boy who woke up till late crying himself to sleep consuming his being with despair they didn't see the boy behind those sneers whose only friends were books an escapade from reality they didn't see the boy behind all those façades who wanted to run away run away from this world run away from his life run away from himself he wanted a new life a new purpose he wanted to throw away his facades to show them his true self but he knew no one would believe so he put on even more facades masking his emotions until he lost himself And woke up to see it was too late he had been left with no choice.
This poem is actually dedicated to a character from the Harry Potter series, Draco Malfoy. I feel he is a very misunderstood character, and definitely deserved a proper redemption arc.
Apart from that, the thing that urged me to write this poem is the fact that people can sometimes get very judgmental. If you don’t properly know a person, you have no right to question their choices.
This quote that I read on the internet, changed my perspective of others-
Don’t question the choices people make, when you don’t know what options they had to choose from.Anonymous
