About the poem
When we asked Nikki to give some more information why she wrote this poem, this was her answer:
I wrote this poem to express how the most broken of people have the fullest smiles.
How do smiles hide so much?
She shone like a broken mirror, laughter followed everywhere she went;
Her bent light was hard to ignore, and somehow that drew people in.
She didn’t quite understand herself, or much of life at that,
And it seemed to be that no one did; they all had bloodied hands.
how it almost always promised a temporary happiness,
Had cast a hold on her tight;
She learnt to paint upon her tears
a rainbow full of life.
Maybe we’re all just meant to live through
The pain and the fears that come our way,
To strengthen our soul and soften our heart
And make us who we are today.
If reason is reason enough for occurrence,
then nothing has meaning at all;
So perhaps in this world where we stumble and fall,
there is purpose for all that we know.
