Sheilded - Poem by sandra geisell

its dark out side the rain
has washed the world away
the darkness has won my smile
is no longer happy but a shield
to hide the gray.
to hide all the pain that i feel
each and every day. they say they
know me that im misunderstood
but, ive been hiding behind this
shield of happiness hinding from
the world as much as i
heart has gone cold my eyes
blind my ears deaf, i no
longer see colors but black and
white my shield is strong i will
not let it fall on the outside
im happy but on the inside im
angry my eyes feel red my face
ablaze.its dark the light has
gone on will never return
