Listen and Look Closer: Poetry


Listen, the world is a cruel place

There’s no doubt about it

But you’re worth more than what it will cost you.

“Look Closer”

At a glance, she’s just a face in the crowd

At a glance, she’s just another random person

At a glance, she’s just “that girl”

But if you were to look closer, just a little, you would notice something new.

Like the smoothness of her hair, or her new hairdo.

Look a bit more closer, notice her top matches her eyes.

Notice the way she walks when she’s determined.

Look even closer, notice the golden sparkle in her eyes, and how the sound of her laughter

instantly picks you up after a rough day

Now close your eyes.

Notice the beat of her heart, and how it matches yours...
