When I lack the Courage
On the days when I have not the courage to carry a smile
I find it best to stay away from those of denial.
On days when I have not the strength of mind or grace to wear a false face
I can only wear the one God gave me that day, one of no grace.
On the days when i have not the courage to care to paint or curl
unless into a ball, seeking only sleep into darkness i fall.
On these days , i ask why i only write when I have moods of gloom
perhaps this way it stays in this room.
