Unnoticed cuts by Nomsa Mahlalela

Poem

All the blocked tears,
All the hidden scars
Made me seem strong over the years.
Deep inside I’m crushed,
Fire burning so high,
Yes, I’m alive, I always smile,
But deep inside I weep.

It’s all the unnoticed cracks,
All the minor burns,
That portray me as a rock,
I’ve learned to live and hide my scars.
Times fly, pain digs deeper,
But I block every tear,
So I can seem strong.

Hard like a rock on the outside,
Only a shadow for a friend by my side,
A pillow my comforter,
That’s where I take it all out.
When the moonlight lights up the world,
I wish it could be daylight because all is well,
When everyone is awake and laughing.

Poet Bio

I’m twenty-two years old. I spend more of my time alone,either reading or writing. Writing for me is an escape from painful reality into a more peaceful imaginary world.
