**For this exercise we were to explore a form of poetry called found poetry, you look up pieces that have already been written and make a poem out of it. There were several examples to use. I picked one of my favorite musicians and picked 9 of her songs took a lyric from each and put together a very personal poem about basically being my authentic self. Her music has gotten me through a lot of good and bad times. I found the illustration on Instagram and thought it would fit perfectly with the theme faces.
Authentic faces through musical lyrics
I refuse to falter in what i believe or lose faith in my dreams
After so much suffering
You’ll always be a part of me. I’m part of you indefinitely
There’s an answer if you reach into your soul and that sorrow you know will melt away
And lightning don’t strike the same place twice, when you and I
No stress, no fights I’m leaving it all behind no tears no time to cry
Images of rapture creep into me slowly
But we all make mistakes, felt the guilt and self hate.
