People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. -- Eleanor Roosevelt
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest. -- Herman Hesse

Life’s not getting simpler.
My smiles have become pretentious.
The shine in my eyes has grown to be dimmer.
Whether they are for good or bad, it’s all contentious.

I can’t help but let this pain flow.
There are no ships for blockade.
Unfortunately, problems don’t melt away like snow;
So for now Time is my only aid.

How things will turn out?
Don’t ask me.
If only we took a different route,
Would I be pleased?

I just want it to be simple,
I don’t want to put on an act,
I want everyone to feel the warm rays,
Why can’t good things stay intact?
When things fall apart I block the pain.
but it comes chasing me after a while.
I don’t understand why Good can’t remain.
Why bad things conquer my smile.

Time has gone by,
And has not healed.
Lately I always cry.
Oh the many tears I have concealed.

I try to keep my heart going.
What does it take?
I need it to keep beating.
Please… don’t break…
