I have no wings,

transcending gentleness

I have no voice

save those who choose to hear

Kindness is all

I have to give…

In Return:

She is me.

Hidden by gravity, grasping any sign of life.

Coming home to the dust of the earth.

A place of longing, to be loved.

It’s gonna Rain

Too quick

for slowing

down

My,

My,  My

blowing wet smoke

burying these shiftless chords

adding up the dead,

                          Forgive us

                                 Our transgressions

                                                   are multiplying

                                                 Forgive us.

“We Wear the Mask”-‘Paul Laurence Dunbar’

We writers are not alone: So many Poets/Authors have paved for the for Artists to Survive:

Poem: By Paul Laurence Dunbar ‘My all time favorite- Enjoy!!! 

WE wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,-
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

Poem: By Paul Laurence Dunbar
