There Is No Other Way - Poem by Sandra jacks

Play Poem Video

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.
