Reflections

Grey skies, it might just rain.
Almost as though it feels my pain.
Waves crashing against the rocks.
Feeling numb on life’s hard knocks. 

Walking towards the open sea.
In the water I see a reflection of me.
Teary red eyes, a girl so down.
What happened to the girl who was once so strong? 

Slowly falling to my knees.   
Useless n weak is what I feel.
I looked to find a happy face.
The one I portray in a daily race.

But what I found and what seemed to be.
Was only a true reflection of me.
One that people never see
and one that I hide entirely.

Is this who I always want to be?
My reflection is slowly killing me.
It’s not the life I want to lead.
But it’s up to me to change the reflection I see.

    "Though the skies are gray, may your day be bright - and may your tender heart be filled with glorious light. Let the joy which love supplies shine through your soul and eyes." ** Poem I wrote for my children, but gladly share with you. Go well, Sasha.

    Cleverly written poem into the insight of what our minds can do to us as we have the two opposing 'reflection' of our character-- ours and the one we want the world to see. Nice write xx

    Sasha, one day may be rainy but after that the sun will shine again! Embrace that fact and think that you only need one person, this special person to make you happy! He is out there, when you are ready he will appear! Beautiful poem, very human and very true! SMILE!
