The Beginning of Wisdom

as i finish with the final makeup
that i put on for the day
i pause to take a look
infront of the mirror

drawing a perfect smile
i drag myself out
into the day where
life goes on

life goes on
until the makeup wears off
when dawn becomes dusk
i slowly limp back home

sitting down in the corner of the bed
i wish tomorrow never dawns
i wish i never have to apply the makeup all over again

years of pain
years of deceit
all hidden behind one single layer
my scars hidden underneath one single layer of foundation
my tears barricaded by this black mascera
my emotions seemingly glued together inside with this red lipstick

all my desires
all my emotions
hidden to perfection inside this cosmetic world
that is now my home away from home

as time slowly ticks by
and the day dawns
the one in the mirror slowly fades away
into the sunlight
leaving the other to take over

its now or never

i am standing here
two in one
me against the one
in the mirror

two souls
one body
one desire
a deep desire to live life

standing infront of the mirror
i resolve to confront my inner fears
my desire to live life
is more stronger

with tears running down my eyes
i cry myself to sleep

night is all but gone
the sunlight slowly streaming in through the windows
i rush to get ready for the day
putting on my clothes
i pause to take a look in the mirror
before i step into the world once again

i pause for a minute
to take the first look,
(at what was)
the cosmetic beauty of my face
now replaced with the inner beauty,
once visible only in the mirror


note: the first time you read it, it might not make any sense nor no meaning could be derived from it. but please read it twice or even thrice and i believe you should be able to understand the meaning 🙂

some nice quotes to go with this poem 🙂


Earl Nightingale
We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.

Bertrand Russell
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

Unknown Author
You don’t drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.

He who fears being conquered is sure of defeat.
