Behind the light

Poetry By: scaza

You can see those people, smiling and shining, ...why can't i?

I could see their eyes,

Their smiling faces,

They shine like stars,

In countless ages.

I stared at my mirror,

fix my hair,

force in a smile

but a tear drops by

I tried my best,

to be the best of the best,

yet when I reach there,

there was still failure

nobody was there to thank me of the effort,

noone was there for me to say I did it all for you,

so you can be proud of me and accept me

but all you have are unreachable expecations

expectations that result to failure

expectations that results to pain

cause they don't feel it

that you really can't do it

Why can't i shine like them?

And make them proud of who I am

In the end, it all makes sense

There's nobody there but me behind the light.
