Smiles

Upon first glance,

I see a Hollywood smile,

an air of intrigue greets passers by. 

But, when I look into her eyes, 

I see something much different 

than her pursed lips convey. 

Reservation, disappointment,

distrust, trauma, fear...

all pushed down, covered 

with happy highlights

for the world to see. 

Perhaps, it’s simply a reflection

of my insecurities,

Artists & Critics

She doesn’t sing to win awards,

she sings to breathe life to her soul,

connect with spirits tuning in,

let them know they are not forgotten. 

 

She knows she will have critics

that judge her art lacking. 

Their negativity is nothing she hasn’t

that ignites

who we are:
dreamer, poet, 
old soul, 

who despite living 
an alternate reality, 
believes in passion, 
love, happily ever after...

At Last

I can’t believe I found you at last. I haven’t seen you since I was 17. 

A few times I felt you near, but couldn’t see you because I was blinded by my attachment to shining knight fairy tales, white picket fences, and the American dream. 

What a relief to know you never really left. You have been here all along, patiently waiting for me...

to smile at my reflection in the mirror.
