Plastered Smiles

Posted by angelica1966 , 25 February 2014 · 75 views

Daily life...a must for all...
   a place to where we are born to stand tall
      despite the Fall...
 
Here I am...called to be...
   wife...mom...daughter...sibling...
      friend...leader...
         me...
 
A plastered smile I put on as I go about my days...
 
A past I carry...as well as a future...
   but it is the present where I now must be...
      caught between my past and my future...
         wandering between the sun and the rain...
 
A plastered smile I wear as I go about my challenging days...
 
I teeter-totter on the fence...
   of acceptance and denial...
      of freedom and chains...
         of hope and despair...
            of joy and sorrow...
 
I wallow and drown in the abyss...
   of doubt...
      of shame...
         of guilt...
            of tears unending...
   of uncertainty...
      of loneliness...     
         of pain...
            of fears descending...
 
Yet a plastered smile I wear upon my face as I walk through these most challenging days...
 
Who am I?
   Truly?
     The answer I know lies within...
        But...I am afraid...truly afraid...
           I do not want to enter in...but I know I must...
              one day...I know...I must...
                 And despite the many...why do I still feel so alone...
 
                          A plastered smile, I feel, I must wear 'til my journey's days are done...




Blown away........wow. This is very powerful A.
