Hard Face


So many never see,
The you beneath the mask,
Assuming you are fine,
They never stop to ask,
They never stop to lend,
A hand when you are down,
You're sailing on, they think,
When you're about to drown,
They only see you smile,
When you just want to frown.

They only see you fly,
When you're about to fall,
They only see you strong,
Before you lose it all.

You know you're not alone,
True friends will not think less,
Of eyes full up with sorrow,
And shoulder's bowed with stress,

For strength lies not in power,
Nor endurance of distress,
Sometimes we cannot help,
Collapsing in a mess,

But you are not alone.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
