“Study hard, play less”
they told me
when I was following my passion
of becoming badminton champion by 2023.

Injured and ultimately consumed,
my mental health took a toll
giving me no other option but to
divert from my goal.

I took out a sheet
and a new list was designed
of everything I wanted to do in my life
to fill up the void left behind.

Started studying most of the day
painted pictures every Saturday and Sunday.
wrote poems every day at four
and went outside my home to explore.

Now they said, “Play hard, study less”
You need to exercise
you are gaining weight
people always find ways to criticize.
