Eyes Of Strength

Rating: 4.4

People pass me everyday
& tell me within my eyes they see
Strength, they say to me you are strong-
But deep within my mind I know it is
Not of my will to be so strong & independent,
It is what others have forced me to be.

Their deceitful ways, untruthfulness,
Their invidious remarks, & hatefulness has caused me to be
stronger, bolder, & the Brownness of my eyes resound my
overflowing Joy of triumph.

Oh the ways of society and the selfish things they may do.
Why it's so hurtful to some, but as I walk and my eyes say
Strength, my walk speaks pride, my presence states my
Glorious tide, it is then I turn back only once to thank society.

Some look forward & never back, but I find it rude not to
congratulate those who became the stepping-stones of my life.
And for my great success I must say,
Society has taught me well.

So to society, thank you.

...i do believe on the wisdom of 'the reality of illusion- the illusion of reality' meaning most of us are good at pleasing others just to be ok at least something possitive is sparking. yet to make it a reality let us say the truth with love to help others to see what and who really they are.... your poem is a piece of cake that i would say 'i have to taste it for me to know its flavor'. thanks

Yes, sod them all, their insecurities fuel our self esteem, Have a look at my 'To die or not to Die'.Similar rage against ignorance.

Its true..what you say. But sometimes it may be the opposite too, which is not so pleasant.
