On Reflection

By: E.C. Fisher

On the surface, I reflect the calm still waters

I glide across the surface with poise and dignity

My exterior glistens brightly as the reflected sun

On the surface, I present you with a lie

Underneath the stillness of the water, my feet are rapidly kicking

Struggling to keep my body afloat as I slowly move forward against the raging currents

The storm blows through me, the crashing waves beating against my will

In the inside, a clash of forces unseen rages, unbeknownst to all

On the surface, the skies have darkened, yet I remain vigil in my presentation

I lower my head against the violent winds and torrential rains

My exterior reflects the agony of my plight, but ‘I am fine’

On the surface, I present you with a lie

Underneath the cresting waves, I fight against the current that pulls me under

My body is heavy and exhaustion overtakes me as the black merciless sea embraces me

My will is broken; I give in and let myself go to it

Underneath the Deep Sea of Depression; I should have spoken
