Let Them Think (Distraction)


Let them think
I’m not more than a smiling statue
Let them say
I’m just a shallow beauty
That so easy to be swept by world current
When inside I analyze everything
And laugh to the fool around me

Let them think
I’m a weak fragile creature
Let them speak
I’m too useless to be consider as obstacle
And not dangerous enough to be watched
When inside I steady my pace
To sneak and reach my goal

Let them think
I’m just a crazy unstable child
Let them discuss
I should go on therapy
When they actually doesn’t really understand or care about me
But inside my emotion is clearer and stronger than anyone
And I could decide which wrong or right

Let them think
I’m a stupid loyal subordinate
Let them treat
It doesn’t matter if I’m not exist
And made only to follow order
When inside I’m an opportunist monster
That hold every their little dirty secret
To use it for my own

Let them think
I’m a naïve innocent girl
Let them point
They dislike me because I never taste the difficulty
Because I never face the cruel world
When inside the dark has lived in my heart
And behind the mask that never cracked
I enjoy that

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
