Broken Wings


It is amidst pretense we live in;
with a mask of words.

A danger within,
we try to conserve.

A place in the society we try to fit in,
but alas we fell to the words of a prejudice.

Though we try to put on a fake smile,
only grief and sorrow lies behind.

We try our best to break free from this,
but the chains of prejudice holding us beneath.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem derived from my English lesson. For our practice of the English language, we were supposed to write a poem on anything we feel like writing about and hence, I came up with this.

Since at the same time I do have a project going on with a topic based on how today's society brand us based on how we look, I was like, 'Hey! Why not write a poem based on that! '

So there you have it! This is the first ever poem to be written by me and I was interested on learning more about poems. I love how the words don't tell but show, how they rhyme, how it delivers a message to the reader. I hope to write more poems in the future despite this mediocre range of vocabulary I have.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
