Day Thirty..#A Girl Named World

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

But lo and behold her eyes are blind to true beauty

Distorted perceptions and falsely misplaced affections

Have created a monster

She trusts in things that are seen

Deceiving because her mind only sees what she wants

She trusts everyone instead of putting her trust in The One

And impatience is her virtue as her fruits blossom before they

have a chance to bud

She trains her body to love physical pleasure

Pleading guilty to her senses

But remaining oblivious to the prison her existence has become

Facing endless disappointment

She’s traded her purity for passion

And her conscience she leaves scarred

Lost

As she steps outside of the comfort of her Father

Her soul sold out

Slipping away from herself

Opening up wounds that only He can heal

If she only knew…

  1. Wow, I love this poem! I think you did a good job of expressing a lot here and tell me if I’m wrong, but it appears obvious in this that God is referenced, right? Therefore an inner battle between good and evil of a sort, but maybe “she” isn’t aware of the good? (I say that because the last line)
    I guess it’s not about you because the writer knows and sees the better options, but “she” doesn’t. If you do write about yourself you’ll have to feel 100% free and not afraid of doing it and you’ll produce some VERY effective poetry. I love the poem, but just trying to say anything else that comes to mind.
    Nice work! Now show me the others 😀

    • Please say everything that comes to mind..I’m always looking for ways to improve..I’m always writing..but never really show much..so I appreciate the feedback!
      Yes..God is referenced here..
      It was in fact written about me..kind of from an angle of me looking at myself from outside my body..kind of seeing the things I was doing..knowing and realising them to be wrong..but not being able to stop myself..even though I know I’m moving farther and farther away from the person I used to be..
      It was a poem I wrote that was deeply rooted in a feeling of rejection and trying to fill that void by seeking out earthly pleasures instead of turning to God..
      I hope what I’ve said makes sense! ha

    I published this poem exactly 2 years ago today. It is as relevant now as it was then..
    I need to start writing again.. I don’t know why it became so lost to me but I don’t like it 😦
    I hope you enjoy it..
