A Page Of My Face

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.

    The mirror didnt define me well to me today
    I will write a full page on my face each day for them
    the prosecutor, a town talk,
    my face, and the way you describe it, a page as a symbol. My strength and my weaknesses.
    I am a special person. Let the world know it. I shall write beautiful poems on my blessed face.
    Thank you dear poet. tony

    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
