A Fake Reflection

Nervous emotions send static shocks through my body.
Heart beats steady and strong.
A drum that keeps a tempo for life
Relentlessly taking the beatings.
Never missing a beat

Unstable thoughts show how fragile I am
Shhh, it’s only for me to see.

You see me as strong and confident
A beautiful woman that has conquered much.

I see broken wings
Weakness in an emotional tornado.

Holding on to an image she presents it to the whole
But hides the truth.

What/Who is the inspiration?

I find it worrying when people hide the truth and do it purposefully.

Not necessarily on purpose... more like being perceived as one thing and being to scared to show parts that make them weak.

My inspiration comes from my life and friends... personal experience and lessons learned.

You are as wise
and imperfect as me.

We give sparingly
and lovingly;

as the truth flows
ever forward
through time.

Happy New Year.
