Brave Face

Brave Face

see me now,
Look at my brave face
I can be a charmer
Saying such nice things
Meant to disarm you
See me
I can be a liar
Saying the things
The real me cannot say
See my brave face
So patient and understanding
Hides the real me
I can be so unforgiving
Because I see now
I am not worthy
I am though
I am worthy of forgetting

I love how you see the things I see and feel!

This is the stuff I can just read forever!i think about such vernacular things in such different perspectives! I love all sides to all things, and i love how you bring the projected side to account. The reader has no choice but to examine themselves from the inside out! beautifully written! I loved it thanks! Cheers SS!

I like this alot. I feel I

I like this alot. I feel I can relate to this poem. I to like I'm sure every one has , put on that brave face. Some have to more then others. Seems like I put my on everyday before I leave bed, to start my day again. We all have our secrets that we hide inside, so others don't see. Good poem , spoke loudly. Keep writing, :) I'll keep a look out for more. Feel free to look at mine, when you have time.

Thank you... Honestly

I've never been able to share my "attempts" at writing poetically. Embarassed and insecure I guess... Exactly what the brave face wants me to believe. So, seeing your comment is encouraging and I thank you genuinely for taking a moment to read, and another to say such nice things. You've given away a smile today. Thanks much.
