TRYING TO BE BEAUTIFUL

 

I am ready for the truth

The precise moment I can say I was torn apart

Here to tell my story

Every horrific detail

Laid out for the world to see

***

I'm so tired of guarding secrets

Biting my tongue

Swallowing words away.

I need to shout, scream, explain...

Every tear, all those frowns

And every single one of those paper-cuts.

***

I'm older now

I wish not for sympathy, nor pity

I seek redemption

I want to shout the biggest appology that the world has ever heard

***

I'm exhausted from running

From the truth, pretty white lies

Every line of poetry should be read

The deepest thoughts of me

All my confessions to numerous mistakes

***

I've worked hard to try and be beautiful

Please note the imperfections too

I'm strong, complete, and without blame

Now I am alive, really breathing

***

This in my life

Written here for the world to see...

Time has a way.


To finally have our say.


You reminded me of yesterday.


Now go and take on a better day

In all the years I have known of you Vee, you have always written with a wisdom that defied your age and this is no exception. Wonderful work you've done here.   Hugs,   Henry

Easy-to-read and a lesson for us all.  Enjoyed it very much.  I'm glad it ends positively.  --David

I agree with Alistar. A well constructed and fine poem. You take the reader on a journey.
