Faced With Yourself - Poem by simona galimberti

Everytime you walk down a street
people pass you by
You don't know, don't know
as they are not your life

I know nobody is perfect
but we all should smile
no room gloomers
please send me a joker once in awhile

Happiness is an unrealistic goal
I know, I see the fight
It's a struggle to keep laughing
as day turns into night, night into day
and day into night

I know about darkness
as it creeps in my mind
all that can be done
is to think it's not my kind

coz it's an illusion
people need to see problems fade
it's not worth the confusion
people are similarly built and made

The trouble is never real
the problem is never the deal
the laughter brings lightness to the heart
let's live away from the dark

A stranger passes me by
takes my hand and shares a cheeky grin
Joy spreads accross my face
hand in hand for a little unknown sin

He says you are not perfect
but all I can do is smile
I was the gloomer
could this be the joker with a satirical stlye?

The tables turn
and you are mirrored with yourself
the stranger is you
and it's your hand you felt

You decide to run and hide
fate has been placed
your heart races, shivers down your spine
and decide it shouldn't be faced

coz it's an illusion
you need to see problems fade
it's not worth the confusion
you too are similarly built and made

Troubles can be real
the problem can be the deal
your laughter brings warmth to the heart
you've made a choice to live away from the dark.

Faced with yourself and that's a fact.
