Perfection – Daily Post

domestic violence

 

Each strand of hair and  the little curl in it’s place.

No smudged mascara

Everything perfect on her face.

She smiles, she laughs

Nothing seems out of place.

 

Handsome husband and two beautiful daughters

Everything seems so perfect from the outside world

 

Her smiles covers the bruises

Her laughs smudges the hurt

It’s far from perfect

 

But, she smiles and she laughs

Until that day

 

Family and friends gather

Unable to fathom, they make up stories about her

Well she smiled and she laughed, so she must have been okay

She is not around to defend her imperfect world

 

Yet they gather to give her the perfect funeral,

Her hair the way she likes, each strand the little curl in it’s place.

No smudged mascara, or blood stains on her face.

Her favorite Hymn at the beginning and the end

It was a funeral fit for a queen.

 

Perfection in an imperfect world.

Author:

I am a beginner to all this blogging. Recently found a passion for writing. Not sure if I am a good enough writer to publish a REAL book. I am probably using this as a testing platform to see if I attract enough interest. I was born in Sri Lanka, now for the last 26 years living in Australia. So am I a Sri Lankan or Australian, it changes time to time. Lets say I am not ashamed to say I am a Sri Lankan but I think my affections lie with Australia. I am a cancer survivor, marriage survivor, war (civil war) survivor and what ever else the world/destiny has thrown at me. So my blog I guess would be about all those things. Humour is Huge for me, fairness is huge for me, I question everything religion, cultural beliefs, Political decisions. So watch out for some some fireworks laced with humour.
