Under the Sparkle


The glimmering story of a fairytale life

A lovely tale

Where everyone loves each other

Where everyone is happy


But if you cover up the sparkles

Take away the glistening

You see the truth

A drab life

One made out to sound ideal

When really

That is far from the truth


That heaven in the clouds

Glinting and winking promise

Is but a sham

A pretense to trick the eyes

To make people envy

Think better of those beneath the sparkles

When really

Those sparkles leave dark spots under them

Dark spots that will spread

Dimming the other sparkles

Hinting bits of the truth
