Facade

Facade

A Poem by Flowers of Eternity
"

Have you been wearing a mask all along?

"
They say I look so bright
But I am actually a plant so full of blights
Always pretending to be alright
I've lost the will to fight
Everyday crying at night
But no tears are in flight

I regretted that I was born
For I am nothing but a thorn
A burden and a scorn
But they don't see that I am in despair
So I will forever wear
This fake smile on my face
And let myself get lost in my own facade

Featured Review

Worked for a while for a boss who looked for faults
Gave me work to plan a new venture > during my holidays
Did the planning - You never knew if the work was true or a cruel joke

I kept all the work at home in a file

Return to work a new guy 'High Flyer@ they said

Boss says I am to take over a new project I have to ask for your papers

So that's his game - I'll have to bring them in

Tomorrow - If I remember maybe day following

or next week keep him hanging on

Gave him some papers - sort of scribble take him ages to sort it out
They were not the right ones _ Who hes made a bloomer
Ordered items for something else - Would have been cleverer to start from scratch - Like I did

The worst is exactly that, when the facade wearers start believing their own press. :):)

Very cleverly conceived.

There is hardly anyone who can say, they had never worn a mask of some sort in life. It became a convenient way to protect us from hurt and embarrassment. in fact, we sometimes did it so much, we don't even recognize who we are anymore

You are welcome
Being a fan of rhyme & rhythm, I find myself wishing line 2 could be pruned back a little, making it more in line with the other lines! But that's just me & my picky point of view! I also have to mention that "no tears are in flight" seems like a "reach" to get that rhyme, since the meaning is not super clear. But despite a couple bumps in the rhyme & rhythm, I am loving your message. You've found many ways to show how a façade happens & why it's justified. We all wear 'em! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Many people hide behind a mask of hurt feelings. You have a universal theme here that many will relate to.

Thank you for the review Chris!
Appreciate it. 😊
I really like that, I feel what your saying, very good poem, I'll save this on for sure, did you mean to put
"...pretending to be a alright" ? if so I think it would sound better if you just said alright, and dropped the A,
good work though
