It Takes Time

It Takes Time

A Poem by Mazie Tackett

Smiles come and go

as do the tears.

I can seem to glow,

then sccumb to my fears.

 

There's no need to lie.

The hurt is hard to console,

but I hold my head up high

because it's not in control.

 

There's no reason to dawn,

to talk about that day.

We all know what went on,

so there's nothing to say.

 

I don't need the aid.

I'm fine on my own.

I'm not afraid,

just need to be alone.

 

At times the tears will flow

or I will strike out in spite,

but you need to know

that I'll be alright.

 

I will continue to believe.

It can't make me stop.

I hope that you can see

somehow I'll end up on top.

Very nice poem, i enjoyed the Rhythm of the piece. The depth of the words is nice. I'm screaming this rhyme even in my mind. Wonderful poem.

Most of the poetry i write is during class, only subs i don't take on. Your poem's quite nice, it evokes feelings i haven't felt in a while. Keep writing, it'll pay off later on.

this poem is so Plath!

i feel this could have come from her as easily as from you...you have a way to express that inner craziness that drives us back and forth between the light and the dark.

well done.
