Joy And Fear - Poem by Maximillian Slaughter
behind every smile their is a scared little boy.
behind every frown their is a happy man.
somwhere in every person their is a secret
a secret held for freinds
a secret held for allies
a secret for love
and all these secrets once said makes a man out of this boy.
the scared boy stops crying and stands up
the happy man becomes a firm teacher
