They See Gold

i am placed in the glass dome.

they don't realise their mistake.

the mind is dismantled, faded.

another must take my place.

 

they tell me they see water.

but the mirrors show me smoke.

they say i am a cloud

but i have never had to float.

 

i am said to possess four cloves.

gifts presented to me on platters.

but if that is so, these recurring tears

would become desert, not frozen snow.

 

and the ice, oh it pierces my skin!

but to them its an invisible stain.

my so-called story has been published worldwide

they see water, diamonds, gold.

 

but gold is not pure.

i am not pure.

 

i am not unbroken.

As humans, we often compare ourselves with people we deem superior or those who seem to have better lives than us. Most of the time however, that is not the case - every single person on this planet has their own story to tell. 

I hope that came across well in this poem.

Take Care,
