Treasure Island

Michael James Kennedy Findlay

(20/04/1988 / Gloucester, Gloucestershire)

Fake Face


A fake face for all to see, covering my true soul
Hiding my true emotions from the world
Allowing me to remain unknown and silent
Hidden from help, never thinking I need it
Scared of telling, scared of what people say
A tortured soul inside that encasement
A prison it cannot it escape
My soul, a safe locked by its own fear
My fear a fake face for all to see, hidden from the world
Ever wanting to be released
But when given chances remains silent and hidden

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
