Reflections

When you look into the mirror

Beyond your smile and the blank stare in your eyes

Are you someone who is happy?

Or someone who is pretending to be?

Your face sometimes depicting an image

That is so far from your reality

………………………………………………………..

As the tug of war on your emotions, play out mentally

Often conflicting, with who you are meant to be

Denial you accept, almost peacefully

Now don’t get cross with me

For merely questioning a possibility

………………………………………………………………………………..

I am in no way suggesting

That you walk around manifesting,

Everything you’re feeling

I’m was just simply asking

How you treat with what you’re truly thinking and feeling?

Because pretending and masquerading

Will only hinder your healing

…………………………………………………………………………………….

Your happiness is important!

Don’t label it insignificant,

Make it your business!

To chip away at any bitterness,

One day at a time,

So your happiness can truly shine.

Living in denial

I close my eyes so I would not see

I cover my ears  hoping to drown out my fears

I stay silent not to seem defiant

I do not want to rock the boat

Where else would I hang my coat?

So I make myself numb as I listen to the beat of his drum

Maybe this state of  denial  is doing more harm than good

Maybe I should speak up and not just sit here like wood

This illusion, this fantasy, is so far from my reality

How many more sleepless nights?

How many more unnecessary fights?

I’m so tired of  pretending

I’m so weary from constantly defending

My pillow is no longer used for sleeping

It’s new purpose – to conceal my weeping

Things aren’t getting any better

Inner strength I must foster

To improve my life and make it better.
