Day 232..#Veiled..

Poem based on an image by photographer Elle Clacken.
*I am yet to receive permission to use the image*


The lives of many have an impact on others
Society changes and alters the course of life
So quite a few question their own individuality.
The ripple effect sweeps the troubled, blind and needy,
Not knowing how to react, many weep in anguish
But life is not as easy as it seems.
Times are harder and the struggle to survive is relentless,
Being watched is something you get used to
Resentment corners some, while insanity possesses the next.
Reaching out only endangers yourself in the normality of your own world,
Seeking freedom from their shell of misfortune
Slowly opening up inside.
