True Feelings

so when someone asks you how you are do you tell the truth or do you betend and say yes I’m ok, thank you. Do people really want to hear your woes and moans so isn’t it better not to tell them and hold it inside, what do you think? Every day on facebook people tell us about their woes and illnesses, or sometimes people hide behind a façade of happiness …what is the best thing to do? What do you think people want to know or not know ?

i walk along this lonely road

and gather blooms along the way

pink and purple do they grow

pastel flowers

in ivory towers

with the powerto bless

if not confess

their beauty comes to stay

and lingers here it is true

for you

and me

to enjoy

and oh boy

they are fresh and full of life

no strife

but soon they falter

and decay

their petals shivel and dry

they begin to cry

so all that is left for me here

i fear

as i smile to you with a grin

and not begin

to tell you how i really feel

its no big deal

i wont moan

and i wont fret

you bet

like a facebook façade i will happy be

though inside of me

it hurts like mad

but its not so bad

this day is done

and i am weary

if not a little teary

l will smile for you because that is best

i wont put your feelings to the test

and tell it how it really is

all in a tis

as life easy it is not

perhaps you forgot

i will not dare

to share

ill hold my thoughts inside

and a big grin

will begin to glow on my face

without a trace

of what i hold within….

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
