Reality short poem

A harsh reality,
Created me.
Resulted me to be like this,
To be captivated here.
But all I wanted,
Was to be free.
A moment like this,
Was never cherished by me.
Because there was a thing,
Deep inside of me.
Which I had always wanted,
To open up and share,
With this world,
And to be a person,
That you’d be proud of.
But a pretty lie,
Pushed me far behind.
I should have known,
An ugly truth,
Would have been much better,
For me to take in.
But I must go on,
On and on,
With this reality,
That I’m not the person,
Who I wanted to be…!

@Rocean_Sharma , realities of life often change something so deep within, one comes out as a much stronger and yet a drastically different person. Your poems are so wonderfully woven in the little fragments of life, that it feels like a piece of the readers own story. Way to go!

Your poem could apply to those having facial enhancements, if at first they were ugly, that’s the truth. Now that they are pretty, it’s the lie. Thought-provoking poem.
