Notice of absence from LIZ

They say what you see is what you get, but let's be real, that's not the case. Pretty body, perfect face, a reflection, a façade. What about the inner self? Outer shell is just a phase. I'm not who you thought I was? That's because you made me up. Not my problem you've been wrong, social media's not my soul. When I introduce myself, a subtle glimpse is what you get.  

You keep thinking that I'm strong, try my essence, you'll be shocked. And you want to know me more? Take a sit and buckle up! Cause this ride will shake your core, but it's worth it…THAT I know!

    love your self-empowering theme
    indeed, introspection is a tool
    not an excuse or a freefall of worth
    just because we confront
    our shortcomings, we should never
    marginalise our self worth..
    a great message!
    thanks for sharing, dear poet

      I appreciate you! 🙏 And yes, absolutely! We tend to focus on looks. But the real magic is inside all of us; and it takes a special, open soul to actually see it, and experience it! That's true beauty! Thank you!
