Today I revisited this spoken word poem I made some years ago. It came right from within me as I was facing a terrible storm in my life.
The truth is, many people often live between two worlds; the imaginery and the real worlds. The imaginery world is a perceived world, a misrepresentation of the real world. In the imaginary world, people create an impressive image to feed the curiosity of their friends, relatives, coworkers etc. It could be through photo-posts, cool dressing codes, warm facial expressions, general grooming and style of talk. However, behind these impressions are a distraught self, one that suffers physically, emotionally, or spiritually. That’s exactly what this poem is about. People often smile, but it doesn’t mean they are totally okay. They don’t just want to unleash their deplorable self in front of the world and his wife. So it’s advisable that before you judge or underrate a person for their actions, please listen to what they have to say. Maybe it could be their only chance to tell their painful story.
