ONCE MORE (Free Verse)

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

second chance

"
4


Once in my life I have shown my face
Then regretted afterwards.
I trusted.
I failed.
And promised I won't be the same.

Once in my life I have worn my veil
That covers my facade.
I pretended.
I hid.
And I became contented being a shadow.

Once in my life I lost my strength
And learned how to become weak.
But I heard my inner voice
I saw myself in the mirror
And I was awakened.

Once again, I am going to show my face
I want to try
I want to believe
That I'll be in peace without my veil
Once more...

Featured Review

Another poem that is both awe inspiring and heart piercing . In the ancient of days women are adored and coveted for their character and modesty. It is known as well as believe that the true beauty and strength of a women lies in her character . Such precious often mysterious qualities emanates through her face . From distant past and culture, the face of the bride is traditionally withheld from the groom until the night after their wedding vows . Somehow mans brain are used and once to be wired that way . The evidence of what is something hope for is temporarily veiled . The anticipation builds up until the day . The night of the unveiling of the face. The true beauty of a women that emanates from an inner heart . A beauty that will truly last .

It will take more than first look, love at first sight and first impression to find such kind . Ms Dhaye , you mystified me with this enigmatic piece . There are so many ways to interpret this . But here is my take and the way that best suits my taste . When God design women He really gave it a lot of thought and consideration . I couldn't imagine a world without one .

Thank you, Sheema. :)
When you cover your face, you cover your mouth; you cover your voice. We want to hear that voice. Most excellent poetry, here.

Thank you, Pryde. :)
I read this and I think of something said once in a room full of gals and guys...
The scenario: 10 women arguing with 1 guy, the "jerk" of the room, while 7 or 8 other decidedly nicer guys looked on. After twenty minutes went by one guy says to another, "Wow, this poor guy's got them ALL at his throat!"
The other then said, "Yes, but you DO notice he has them ALL, and look at us."
A brief hush, then a collective "Yeaaahhhh, that's riiight."

Metaphorically speaking, "Respond to angels, ignore demons"

Show your face, wear that smile, believe, and more important, keep doing what you do best, inspire others to want to do the same.
This is a new favorite stashed today, Thanks Dhaye!

i often hear people say that "be yourself", but when you show who you are, they are the first people who would judge you. i am glad that the voice finds comfort and peace in dropping her veil once again.

Thanks a lot, Gab. You always make me smile whenever you peep at my page. :)
I won't get into how I feel about the practice of women covering their faces Dhaye, but I applaud you on the wonderful poem and your decidion to drop the veil and let everyone see your beautiful face.
