Fall and Rise

Simply unique, hard to explain,
bites her lips hard to feel the pain.
Swallows lost words she wants to say,
her thoughts run wild in distinct ways.

Wears a fake smile, like many do,
yet her heart always remains true.
Performs her part, forces a laugh,
keeps her eyes focused on her path.

They see her fall, she has breakdowns,
then stands up proud, to face the crowd.
She has a flair, inwardly twirls,
while being seen as a plain girl.

Her deep cuts bleed like everyone,
plants blissful seeds til hurts gone.
After she leaves her essence stays,
beautiful soul brightens each day.

  1. So beautiful, so inspiring Grace!
    Love these transitional lines-
    They see her fall, she has breakdowns,
    then stands up proud, to face the crowd.πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  2. Sad that we can’t always show our inner self on the outside. but happy she can stay true to herself. Beautifully done, Grace! πŸ’ž πŸ’ž πŸ’ž
