I LOOK DOWN


I LOOK DOWN

(an introspective poem)

I look down
on my feelings
from a cloud
high up above

I see a woman
still drowning
and in great need
of real love

She feels bitter
powerless
doubtful
and fatigued

If only I could
make her believe
the one who’s always
been here
was me

To make her brave
Give her confidence
To love herself
and to shine

But instead
I sit here swinging
on this billowy
cloud of mine
