My Cross - Poem by Joseph Skelley

My Cross

You know you have never ever walked one mile in my shoes
Not knowing any of my dreams, memories or things I been through
Trying so hard to show laughter but the tears of a clown deep inside
Seems you can try and run away but in reality you can never hide
From your emotions, fears, and from all your rights and wrongs
Living day by day and off in a distance I can see a flickering light
So I am praying and living so it will become closer in sight
Not sure of anything these days so I try my best just to carry on
For today I am here well and alive but tomorrow I could be gone
And in your heart you will never know what is like to be me
So there are certain things in this world we should learn to let be
For each and everyone of in this life has a cross we must bear
So I have faced my cross in life while others look away as if in fear
For I do not judge or care to be judged for it is me I have to take care
As I travel through my lifes journey I am more then thankful for each year
