Jay's Poems

Well, this is my book of poems I've written over the pas couple of months since I started writing.


5. Pain and Happiness

Pain always lies behind a facade of happiness.
The smiles hiding the tears.
Laughter hiding screams.
Dancing hiding the urge to harm.
Singing hiding the need to shout.
We are not free.
We are locked in our own cages.
Scared to come out even though we can.
Afraid someone, anyone, might think ill of us.
Differences do not make us weird, they make us unique.
And if you can't see that, how do expect anyone else to?
Weight is just a number.
Beauty is just an illusion.
And happiness is just a lie.
True happiness is gained when we finally look in the mirror and accept what we see.
The scars, the weight, the bruises, the pain.
It is us.
These are the things that define us.
Without them, we are just another lost soul.
Searching, for a purpose.
