"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"


The bubble,
On the surface so rainbowy,
on the inside hollow.
Disguises the fact of hollowness
with a rainbowy smile.
So much like me,
little bubble.
People do not understand you
as I do.
Floating down, down to your doom,
your fragile surface
a thin mask to the truth.
So much like me, little bubble.
Pop!

Fall in love or fall in hate; Get inspired or be depressed; Ace a test or flunk a class; Make babies or make art; Speak the truth or lie and cheat; Dance on tables or sit in the corner; Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Breathe. And enjoy the ride...

i love the descriptive yet simple details you wrote here like : disguises the fact of hollowness" and "with a rainbowy smile"

Nice symbolism, but unlike the bubble, you are not hollow.  Your work proves that.
