    My sister Cecelia, my true sister by blood
    With her poems, the memories for me start to flood
    And as I start to realize that poetry is her hidden gift
    My feelings on how we grew up takes an unexpected shift
    In families such as ours, we all had our roles
    I happened to be the favorite, the spotlight I stole
    And her role, as it were, was to be the clown
    Friends flocked to her because she was fun to be around

    But as old and tiring as these roles had gotten over the years,
    when siblings get together, roles turned into battle gear
    It's how we grew up and so, learned how to cope
    through the dysfuntion, what was there to hope?
    I see it now, Cel, the sadness through the smile
    I see the crack in the mask, it's been there all the while
    It's hidden so well, as long as others keep laughing
    your sense of humor is really your sadness-in-masking

    I hope you already know this, but I'll tell you here
    I love you so much, and close to my heart I hold you so dear
    We have so many things that we will never agree upon
    but understanding you better through poetry is now what's spawned
    I thank you so much for the opportunity to look into your soul
    I'm happy you now have people in your life making you feel whole
    And before too long, I hope to see you finally hold your head up high
    and that you'll put down that mask... and kiss it goodbye.

    Welcome to Poemhunters, I know they'll love your company, sista.
    Much love,

Masking The Truth

My life was based
on masking the truth,
not allowed to express feelings
buried throughout my youth.
'Don't tell others
what goes on behind closed doors, '
still masking the truth
and developing sores.
As time passed,
as time always does,
what was masking the truth,
still is, as it was...
I'm not talking about
telling big or even little white lies,
I'm tallking about masking pain
through silence and lying eyes.
If all this seems too confusing
then try walking in my shoes...
It feels just as confusing
because these ...
