Pretty Smile

Pretty Smile

A Poem by Shuchita

She had a pretty face,

She had a pretty smile,

But I wonder what happens to her

When she re-reads her journal,

Her pretty face becomes pale,

Her pretty smile gets replaced by tears,

Her mind gets lost,

When her old days are found

For me this is a story about self realisation. The person in the poem appears to be 'shallow' in the sense that she had a pretty face and a pretty smile, and as she reflects and thinks back on her life, she realise that that was all there really was to her and that actually hit me harder than I expected. Then again, it could just be that she's sad because she got old and I just read too much into it :P
It has many ways of being interpreted, good work! :D

a sad write, nothing lasts forever everything comes to an end including beauty and memories with old age we are like flowers really just in slow motion photography from birth to death, nice stuff..

This poem speaks its emotion very well. It really points out the description of the girl. Even you use simple words, its meaning is clear. Keep writing!

Journals are indeed a bittersweet journey to the past. Tears of joy or tears of sadness. The story lies behind the emotion of the eyes. Good write. :)

A very good poem. I like set-up leading to honest ending. Make the reader feel the loneliness and the sadness. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

I know someone who tried her best to be a better person. She became happier but something changed when she looked back. Nice poem :)
