The Girl Behind the Facade 

She wasn’t that strong
The courage she wore
That wasn’t true 

Her bold speech 
Purposeful strides 
No-one actually knew 

Behind her clear decisions
Those controlled emotions 
A barrier crossed by few 

Behind the façade 
A girl so broken 
Counting lost years 

Burdens too heavy 
For her fragile mind
Shattered her dreams

Sacrifices too great
Snatched her hopes
Leaving scars deep

But with pride too high 
She had no choice but 
To hide behind the facade

  2. Poem is definitely nice. But is it about the lady behind the poem or just a poem? I know, I am asking a question on a public platform… But you posted it on here… Was just curious.

    As a poem it’s as usual a fab word art.

    1. Well there isn’t a tactical way to answer around this on a public platform like you say :p
      But I personally can never JUST write a poem, I need an inspiration, and most of that comes from the mind and life of the lady behind the poem 🙂
      Thank you.
