"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf

The side you see of me,

Is bright and happy.

Kind and caring,

Yes that's my mask.

You'll never see,

The true colors of me.

Anger flares in my belly,

But truely I was good once.

Now rotten and worn,

Scars trail my path.

Show pony to work horse,

I say I'm okay,

Only smile to cover tears.

Look away from,

A ticking bomb times up.

The author's comments:

This is about how what we see in front of us can disguise what the person we see is truely feeling and to remember to show kindness because you never know when someone is actually happy or when they look it and act it but don't actually feel it.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
