In today's Dear Oppa segment, we've received a special letter from a fan named Aazaad. She reaches out to BTS member Jin with a poem she wrote a few months ago. She tells us that she had an intuition that something wasn't right with Jin and ended up penning the poem. She revealed she has shared it on her Instagram account and on the Weverse platform. "In December, Jin shared Abyss and I had a confirmation that what I felt was in fact real. However, I couldn't make it reach him back then, but I really want to try and make it reach him this time," she said. 

With that hope, she has shared her poem here. Check it out below: 

~ To Jin ~

I would refuse to look in the mirror,

I hated myself.

Now I'd look at my reflection,

And always tell me,

I love myself, because I really do.

You made me want to.

You'd be sad, I know,

Yet you always smiled

Just so everyone around you would do it too.

I saw it all and slowly,

I ended up turning into someone like you.

I am happy and I am proud of it.

I remember that scene,

Where you said, "making someone smile

Makes you smile too",

And I cried thinking- Ah! If he says it's fine,

I can be fine too. But I'm just like you,

I know the loneliness underlying our smiles.

You are the freshness in the autumn breeze,

You are there yet nobody see you, you are felt.

You are the cold in the gales of wind.

You'd trembling leaves yet the calmn of the fall.

But if you are away, what's an autumn?

What's a breeze if it doesn't make you shiver and smile?

I learnt to love myself, all because you told me too.

Some day someone may learn this from me,

Some day I'll make someone love themselves too.

And I want you to know, it's all you, it has always been you,

For you've shown me the reasons, for me to love myself.

Some day, I will show them to someone too.

Thank you so much, her name is an urdu language word that means "free" which she truly is, because she got rid of those thoughts. This is purely heartfelt

Por isso que eu amo BTS ,porque mesmo com suas imperfeições eles ajudam a resgatar vidas que estão presas mentalmente a beira de um colapso, eu sou uma prova viva que eles resgatam vidas.

The poem is so beautiful. I, myself has noticed that Seokjin always tries to let the other members shine and he is the first person there to comfort you. I loved that you understood and loved the real him. The poem is marvelous.

This so Amazing who ever has written this I love you . And I feel so happy that you understood him so well . This poem is so relatable because it is conveys everything I felt too and I want to say to him. He is really a person who smiles and laughs alot but he is also the person who hides his tears behind that beautiful smile of his . He has taught all of us to love ourselves but somewhere he himself still finds hard to love himself . I love him a lot and will always support him till end .
