Smiling through the pain


I may smile
But you haven’t known my pain
My successes seem grand
Taking me places that I could have never planned
Frost’s path has indeed made all the difference for me as well
Proud and tall I stand
Nevertheless my pain has been much grander
Covered it as well as I could
Wailing in the dark; alone and lonely
Wails falling on deaf ears
Purposefully I allowed them to fall
My soul needed to heal
My heart knew this and listened to its cries
Sitting here now reminiscing with a healed soul
And a grateful heart
Sighing…
Reflecting on past pains
Smiling in awe for the girl in me who made it through-
Especially taking into account that she took the path less traveled
And that made all the difference

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
