Artist Favorite



You look in my eyes
And see the damage
You think I'm fragile
And could never manage

But I've been alone
My entire life
And my heart has sharpened
Like the blade of a knife

So don't mistake me
For a silly little girl
These shoulders of mine
Have carried the world.

I love the heavy conclusion, perfect delivery. I didn't even see the poetry tag before I read it, and thought "This sound like good poetry."

Great poem. I picture this as spoken word with accompaniment behind it. Very nice write!

Ohhh, nice!

So well written, Lines started to form in my head... great as-is, but would not be surprised to see other versions of it either.
