Ugly Duckling Interupted: Acrostic

You Were Always a Swan
You Were Always a Swan

Such an ugly duckling.” the others cackled and slapped the water in agreement.

Under the burden of shameful stares your head ducked.

Inclined to believe what others say, you swam away. You

Couldn’t see the swan swimming smooth as silk on the other side of the reeds. Searching

Inside yourself for true identity, the answers

Decidedly never came. You

Ended the story before your clouded reflection cleared.

  1. Intense…. Lovely poem. If only they knew that it was just a passing cloud, they would endure for a lovely turn around.

  2. Sadly true and beautiful, sometimes we can’t see through our present pains.
    The title reminds me of “Girl: Interrupted” , a movie Angelina Jolie acted in.
