Motivating Smiles

August 8, 2010
Behind my smile lies the truth,
of a girl who's made her glory.
A never ending battle with a man
who shows his fury.

She tries to climb the latter,
but he pulls her down
where it's darker.
Holding her back an angel comes,
and shows her a way that's faster.

She sees the light from her smile,
decides that he can't stop her.
The angels' healing words,
has made her much more stronger.
Now she knows; to get past the disaster,
she must travel in numbers.

When I first started I thought I needed like this catchy first line to build off of. When I started this one it was "behind my eyes lies the truth" I really like that, but poetry isn't about just rhyming; it's about the words behind the great sound. It was hard at first because I had trouble with coming up with that first line. But as the emotion ran bigger within me to write I found that I don't need a catchy line at all. The rhyming held me back at first tis why they're so short. after I ... (more »)

Poetry isn't something that can be forced. For me the first one I had to think of something to write about, that I felt strongly about.
