“Fallen Facade” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Fallen Facade”

By Ashley O’Hare

That shimmer in your eyeshadow

will never compare

to your unique soul.

Long eyelashes

may look elegant,

but they will never beat

your soft eyes-

finding beauty through cracks and dents.

You cannot manufacture

your natural beauty.

You cannot hide

your wild spirit.

You cannot package

yourself into a bottle.

You will never

hide your pain

behind a straight white smile.

The facade will fall

and you will be waiting

underneath it all.
