    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    Things I've Seen by josephwrites I have seen,

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    A SOLDIER As I awoke I could see the glow,

    As the sun rose in the sky. I tried to pick my self up and stand, But I could only try. I couldn’t remember what was wrong, I had passed out from the pain, I had no memory of the metal shards, The flew right through my brain. My arms were lying at my side, And numb...

    Pain stands behind your eyes Rising with the tears. Emotions sit on your lips. A life A past A story All of it I know. You're always there, Slowly changing, Along with me. Always mimicking. I've always known What you'll do next. Until the mirror smashes. Pieces everywhere. And...

    Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust,

    I spoke my truth, And now it's bust; I kept it whole, And kept it real, But comments were made, On how I feel; I speak again, Instead of mute, A bravery song, A grand salute.
