Do Not Look At Me

This was an interesting one, I tried to use a stronger voice for this piece and have a realistic point of view to express the theme. Thank you Mama Lia for the life lessons and poetic practices.
Theme: Do not look at me.

Do not look at me...
I am not a heroine
Neither pure or evil
Do not look at me
I am not an example
for the youth to look up to
Do not look at me.

I am not a trophy
A has-been of yesteryear
Purely rusted iron on the inside
I am merely gold plated
Never make me your aspiration
I have lost my lustre and shine
Do not look at me.

Do not put generations
in my hands to hold
Do not make me lead or follow
It will be catastrophic
like the blind leading the blind
Do not look at me.

I am your pillar no longer,
The foundations below me
have gone to shambles
I am breaking and disintegrating
No support for you to lean on,
I am not the roof over your head
Do not look at me.

Do not look at me.
