Inside - Poem by William Lindenmuth

When the inside world comes out
What in the world were you thinking
Were you always filled with doubt
With emotions forever sinking
Does a smile touch a tortured soul
Renewing the spirit from within
From the inside world
To the outside looking in
When the outside world
Lives within
Can you cope and take it’s pace
Or do you slow it down
To a modest and bearable pace
Do you filter out the things
Or the bearers of bad news
Letting the negatives drain
While you’re walking in their shoes
Do send the positive out
Share the warmth of what you feel
To thaw out negativity
And the damages unconcealed
When the inside world comes out
Your smile seems warm and true
It’s wonderful for you to share
That inside part of you
