Confidence

by Brookie   Jan 1, 2015


She boasts confidence,
Eyes staring death down
With no faulter in her movement;
She's not scared.

She protects anyone
Without second thought,
Loving every step of the way
With a mother's heart

She will never be
defeated

But you'll never see
What it's like at night,
Alone
Fighting demons.

Eyes that carried love
Have faded and tears
Falling onto sad attempts
Of Poetry is the only consistency

Wrinkles fill her face
And death has stolen
Her strong voice.
You wouldn't recognize her.

She's a ghost.

But still she gets up
Every morning
With more resolve
Than the day before

She breathes confidence.

Not my best work

    I like this one of yours, and think you have picked a good layout to match its pace.

    With more resolve
    Then the day before

    - then should be than.

    But I do like this piece. Well done.

    This person's mantra seems to be keep fighting no matter what you are going through. Even a moment of happiness is better than nothing at all. The first half of the poem is beautiful with it's meaning. Though she is old that doesn't break her spirit at all. The ironic thing here is that people usually fear death, but she faces it head on. But no one can feel what anyone else is feeling inside and no one can see the demons inside, but the way you wrote this, even that doesn't shatter her confidence. She is not what she was in her youth, but that doesn't matter to her at all. Because she still gets up, she is a shell of her former self. I love this poem for it's meaning and character details. You detail the fact that she is older, with the wrinkles and face. I love the imagery. 5/5
