Another day lived in silence and vain

by Aish   Aug 22, 2008

I stand there naked infront of my mirror,
Looking at my beautiful figure.
Im anything but a hideous sight,
So why do want to shut my eyes tight.

I walk through the day yearning to see,
Somebody's eyes turn on to me.
I want them to smile, want them to frown.
Want them to hug me, or push me down.

But i walk through the day undetected,
I long to feel noticed-to feel accepted.
But noone even notices that im here,
So alone i shed a silent tear.

I know I'm not ugly-Im tidy and sweet,
So why am i fading to be obsolete.
I might be invisible but i still feel the pain,
Of another day lived in silence and vain.

    I was shy as a kid too. Now people think I'm too in-your-face. Go figure!

    If you have confidence in yourself, you have to project that onto others. It's the only way forward, trust me!

    The poem was well written, and you kept it short, which is a good thing because it shows that confidence in yourself is genuine and you're not wallowing in self pity like so many authors of a similar topic. Nice one.
