From the outside looking in A smile is scene From the inside There's a load of tears Waiting to be released From the outside looking in They can't see far My windows are tinted From the inside looking out My heart wonders why I feel alone From the outside I seem well From the inside I know I've become good At the game of hiding From the outside I seem so put together When on the inside I am falling down Crashing fast The tears flow when I am alone Or sometimes I am so strong It's like I've forgotten how to cry I am defeated by this Dreaded disease Trying to rule my life I won't let it I'm a fighter I'm a riser I'm a get up off the ground No matter what I'll keep on Keeping on Even when I have to crawl. .
Spectacular!!! It's really well written. Sad how very much I can relate to and yet good that i can totally relate to the end. Like the rest of us. We are warriors, we will stand together and we will keep moving forward.🌻🙏🏻
What a very descriptive poem Tiff. I can tell it came from the heart. And it reflects what all of us have felt at some time or another. Thank you for sharing your gift! And just know you are not alone. 🙏🌼
Beautifully expressed. I love the use of the phrases "from the inside" and "from the outside" as refrains throughout. They're like the chorus in a song; they hold everything else together, thematically.
