Hidden beneath the smile
Of all the people

There is a halfway terrified child
Sitting on the carpet
In the yellow room
Where no children play

There is a halfway read copy
Of the book you don't
Recommend to your grandparents
Sitting on the antique bedside table
Next to the bed
Of the sleeping grandma
Who will never wake up
But who will not die in her sleep

There is a halfway grown up girl

There is a halfway sleeping boy

That she has no parents

there is a halfway happy daydreamer

There is a halfway developed photograph
Of the halfway terrified child
Of the halfway happy daydreamer
Of the halfway grown up girl
Of the mother of the children
Of the halfway sleeping boy
Of the grandmother
