Just a little Poem

Sep 10, 2015 7:07 AM

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.
