Don’t tell me Harry Potter isn’t real
For it is hard to believe you ,
Don’t tell me it is a work of fiction
For it is an escape you and I could never imagine .
You may think magic is an illusion
A mere figment of someone’s imagination ,
You may think the characters never existed
But I found solace in them, when in no one else I did.
It has been way better than real people
Who were not there even when they were,
It has always been my escape from reality
My happiness and my solidarity .
And if you tell me it is not real ,
Then I don’t know what is.
And if 10 years down the line
You happen to ask me some day,
‘After all this time ?’
‘Always’, I will say.
