Magic Mirror- A Poem By Nia Rose

You spend your days wearing the face of others. 

Oh, what a monumental power to possess.

With you, there are no gimmicks. 

You shine a light on unadulterated truth.

I suppose that’s your cross to bear.

 Is that why you’re so fragile? 

Is that the reason your smooth exterior shatters so easily?

Surely you’re aware of the potency your candidness holds.

You may shine a light on reality, 

but the truth is our minds interpret what our eyes see,

and more often than not, imagination blends with actuality. 

We are such funny creatures, only gazing upon our diluted truths.

How tiring it must be to realize 

not everyone is wise enough to receive your gift, 

but you have no choice except to give it away. 

I suppose that’s your cross to bear.

Hey! My name’s Nia Rose and I love to write, or more like I need to write. Yes, I’m one of those writers who possess that voracious yearning to create. I realized early on this urge wasn’t going away so I decided to embrace it and devote my time to being a professional writer. I wanted to create a space where I could freely post my work and experiment with different genres. My main areas of focus are poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. My goal is to continue growing as a writer and to create content people will enjoy!
