There is no other way


I am escaping,
as we speak,
from the screaming voices,
cruel voices,
condescension,
it hurts be me,
where i am,
it hurts to live here,
in this pain,
but me,
being who i am,
will pretend,
i am happy,
i solumly swear,
to keep silent,
in my sadness,
and to smile,
through pain,
as if it where a luxury,
i am lucky to have,
i am lucky to be alive,
i will encourage others,
expecting nothing from them,
and i will not tell you when i am sad,
i will try my hardest,
to hold back to tears,
so tight,
i know no other way.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
