Stronger

by Em   May 19, 2016


Weathered face
Sweet disgrace
Crying eyes
Charming lies
Distorted soul
Heart of coal
Disfigured skin
Painted on grin

All the things I'm no longer
because I've become stronger.

    That's really good, in structure, voice and message. One of your best, an instant classic.

    Hate and pain is a burden that disfigures ones face because it shows on our face, despite the many veneers of facade we may put on. Letting go of the hate and pain makes us stronger. Lovely write Em
