Who are you?

Let’s raise a toast
Cheers to you!!
Take a sip of liquid sanity
What’s your poison?

So seemingly strong
But you’re dying inside

Which face do you have on today?
Who are you really?

Where do your secrets lie?

Aren’t tired of being tired?
Of being scared
Of wanting to cry, to scream
Peering over the edge?

All things to all people...

Girlchild trying to be Superwoman
Complicit in your won demise

When are you going to matter to you?
When will you ever be enough?

I like this

Hi Lintajonhera,

I like the up-beatness of your poem and how it makes me personally think about your questions.

Well done

Lortoria
