A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.
Joyce A. Myers


Shedding a tear,
Even just two or three
Is not an option,
And will never be.

Keeping it buried.
Pushing it deeper below.
Trying to make room,
So I don’t overflow.

Putting on masks,
To hide the real me.
A pained and pathetic child…
I will not let you see.

So here I sit,
A fake smile I wear.
You buy and believe it.
Shows how much you “care”

But why tell the truth?
It will just complicate.
Maybe I’m meant to be miserable.
Maybe it’s just fate…

This just describes me... And what goes on in my subconscious... Enjoy..
