#PoetryLovers: Recognition.

When you step out from the shadows and breath that sigh of relief,

A sigh one in their comfort zone cannot relate to, conform to,

Realising the mistakes that left you in the background in the first place,

As the false promises, hatred and betrayal begin to surface,

When the pain can get no more painful and you believe your judgement is riddled with flaws,

You wait for doors leading forward to pen but they never do,

They ask what happened to you?

To the soulful being who’s now soulless,

To the encouraged individual who’s now discouraged,

No response can express the distress that those trusted have caused,

With the ink in your pen the growth process starts again when your words of thought are finally released,

The weight off your shoulders lifted by the spoken word of your emotions when you write between the lines and read between their eyes,

When in these four walls where previously a dawn hasn’t broken,

You see a splinter of light and take it as a token that you’re still worth something in this world,

This world wrapped up in deceptions and misconceptions,

But you’re still worth something in this world,

Even when feeling an inch small with the disappointments endured you stand tall and don’t even know it,

Now it’s your time to show it,

To show the masterpiece you have become after the let downs and daily frowns,

The crafted individual with more than a clear visual of your purpose,

Spreading words from the heart to lift others from the dark you roll on,

The definition of strong,

You strive for long-term greatness with ambition that’s flawless trying to avoid the heartless,

And now you see for yourself that there is hope for you yet,

You vow never to let life’s demons get the best of you again.
