Painted Visage

Visage

Countless faces filling the streets

Blurry visages that never speak

But one stands out from the  wall

And he admires her colours with every stroll

A mystery girl adorning the city

Neglected in plain sight, yet always pretty

She was made for him, he always thought

Marvellous, majestic and can never be bought

She soothes the ails of lonely sufferers

And quenches the thirst of art-lovers

Desperate wanderers in a world that crushes

Can sometimes find hope in paint and brushes

A State of Crisis

In a crisis state

Panic can overwhelm the crowd

Calming miracle

To hold emotions

Suppress your daunting fear

Or stand in its face

For every crisis

Shall hopefully come

But it leaves a trail

Failure

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling (Harvard Speech)

Failing to understand, failing to succeed

Fearing the failure that did the deed

Burying yourself and dying inside

So as not face it, you choose to hide

But you will soon learn that this very failure will help you stride
