 Elsie`s Poetry



People look at me and see my eyes are dry
What they don`t see is that inside I cry,
I wear the mask of a happy smiling face
But of the sorrow I feel there is no trace.

That sorrow weighs heavy upon my heart
But try as I may it just won`t depart,
I do try to think in a positive way
But my mind wanders and on track it won`t stay.

I can`t let the mask slip for all to see
That something just isn`t right with me,
I must carry on and try to be brave
Knowing I`ll never have the solace I crave.
