Fly and Smile

Fly and Smile

i pretended i could fly
but i was actually falling from the sky
where limits are beyond my imagination
even beyond my comprehension.

years after, i still fall
for all of the truths i was told
were lies camouflaging as reality bites
tell me i was wrong for believing
it after all.

i pretended i could smile
but i was actually frowning in disguise
for years and years i’ve dealt
with life’s theatrics
and dramatic stint.

years after, i still smile
for all the events i should have cried
maybe then it’s time to let go
of flying and smiling
‘cos all i wanna do is fall harder
and cry louder.

harder.

louder.

  2. Sometimes we need to fall so our tired wings can rest. Then, later on we can take flight once more

  5. So powerful…so heart-touching, SweetMich! We can all relate to your words and emotions. ❤️
    Sometimes, especially as women, wives, moms, teachers, etc., we need that break from all we do and give…we need a rest…we need to refuel…so we can set off flying and smiling once again.
    Thank you for all you give to so many of us!!! 🙂 ❤️
    (((HUGS))) ❤️
