The World Keeps on Spinning

The world carries on,

They are none the wiser,

Just another face,

In the daily race.

*

Stuck in our stories,

Separate books on the shelf,

See behind those eyes,

A soul does there lie.

*

I show to the world,

My hard leather cover,

My pages fragile,

Just make the next mile.

*

Strangers are staring,

See cracks in the cover,

Each look weighs a ton,

They keep walking on.

*

Some may wonder why,

Divert from their own lives,

Most will soon forget,

There’s no need to fret.

*

Replaying the scene,

Over analysing,

One moment in time,

A personal crime.

*

To me one chapter,

For them only a glance,

Into someone’s book,

It’s only a look.

Your Truth

IMG_1523

Don’t let them define you,

Only you know the real you,

We can change and evolve,

Don’t need no permission.

*

Speak and live your truth,

Don’t let the dictators and those haters,

Keep you from your heart and soul,

Release yourself from the control.

*

Some of us are scared,

But don’t be impaired,

By the struggles of the mind,

Let your true self shine.

*

If they don’t like it let it be,

We don’t need them to see,

That you are amazing,

Be who you need to be.

*

Know you’re not alone,

Being trapped by society,

Confidence is lost,

Feelings of isolation and frustration.

*

Change how you think,

For yourself, no one else,

There’s no one to prove,

If you’re not you you’ll lose.

*

In the end you’ll regret,

Not living through your personality,

You’ll see it’s a tragedy,

Change this mindset and break through the net.
