True self

She stood still in the moment,

The camera captured her as she smiled,

At the corner of her eye was a tear waiting to come by,

The clicking sound started to hurt even more,

Someone who she isn’t she had to portray to the world outside,

She had to show she was strong and bold,

The world knew her to be so,

Inside she wanted to burst out and be free,

Away from all the people and all the empty lies,

She rushed and closed the door,

Droplets of tears dropped on the floor,

But she smiled for here there was no one to judge,

She was alone but still felt free,

And continued smiling even in this misery…

True Words

The truth hurts sometimes,

But those words must be spoken,

It may bring tears and sadness,

But the truth cannot be buried,

Lies cannot flourish,

Speaking your mind at that moment,

Some may understand,

Others may choose to ignore…

Truth Above All

Their Dreams are unfulfilled , their failure is a success for some,

Others put them down with no hesitation, selfishness and greed takes over kindness,

Power takes the highest role, simplicity is no where to be found,

Their struggles never seem to end for them truth holds the highest key,

Mediocrity is saluted, they have no say and yet they dare to dream in this world,

They want to achieve great heights but obstacles lie,

No one seems to understand them, yet their strength never dies

They realize they are very few like them who are still very kind and still believe in the truth,

So, they keep going and that makes the difference…
