A Page Of My Face - Poem by Yewande Adedokun

I wake to a dawn on my face
its a call i must take
I will change the mirror i looked into yesterday
because it didnt define me well to me today

My strength as been misjudged for my weakness
I plan to take them through their judgement
My diary will give the account with no end
I will write a full page on my face each day for them

My diary will have a narrator
and i the author
sitting in the crowd is the prosecutor
but my life will be a town talk
because my face is being at all times on a page-off.

    Wow! This is wonderful poem, well composed with excellent artistic choice. Your second stanza 'my strength has been' please correct that. You can also read mine 'I too am a voice' similar to this (Report) Reply
