A girl wore a mask upon her face so none could see The life she lived that had been so full of cruelty Never wanting anyone to gaze upon her scars Like a prisoner the mask had became her bars
She would only remove it when none were around It made her life so much easier she had found Only she could see the imperfections she did bear Ridicule from the town people Nor for them to stare
One day so late she ran only to trip and fall Losing her mask shocked to be seen by them all She tried to hide her face, as the crowd stood in silence For they had seen not one sign of any kind of violence
Terrified now she gazed out into the crowd "Look she's quite a beauty!" someone did say out loud She didn't understand for surely they had lied But you see all her scars she carried them inside
The moral to the story is that for our unwanted pain Others may not see our scars but still our shame remains
reneewolfcrowdenunezOh my excellentè @raven63 first off all lets just stop comparing ourselves to each other lol we equally rock! I was thinking when you were praising my poems, some of those i was ACTUALLY feeling ashamed of, not my best you know? And then you say these wonderful things, well i feel EXACTLY the same about YOU AND sometimes when I read yours I feel like you've reached into my soul and scattered the words that are floating around in there, right down on paper.. I think we MIGHT be soul sisters and we found each other through the pen.. Thank you for this and I'm going to read on..i tagged you in one i'd love you to read but if its cool can we BOTH do that for each other in all our poems? So WE can REALLY share and give each other feedback and therefore become better writers? I would love that my sister through the pen! big huge hugs
raven63@reneewolfcrowdenunez yea works for me! And I felt the same about yours it was just that one about your baby I started crying from the jump! But hey will be in late tonight!;)
reneewolfcrowdenunezOhh yea gf! And I'm gonna have to space out the ones about my son lol and I'm bed bound for now so I'll be able to talky delve into my writing AND my new friendships!
