The Truth?

 

Not everyone with a big smile on the outside

is smiling on the inside.

Some  are drowning in sadness, close to suicide

and with no one to confide.

When success meets you in life

Not everyone congratulates you from the heart.

They would rather see you in strife

and gloat when your life is torn apart.

*

Not everyone heading to the Altar

has a good intention.

Some set out to hurt their partner

Just To beat Immigration.

Not everyone in a high position of power

Is worthy of that respect.

They are just people in Uniform

With a big, fat pay check.

 *

Not every child is happy at home

They’re not given a kiss or even a hug.

We’re harsh on them, as the streets they roam

and eventually become a Thug.

What you see, is not what’s there

The truth will never be laid bare…….

Poem – Look Deeper

I think sometimes in life, we are too quick to point a finger…..

 

Poem – Look Deeper

 Why does he always smoke and continue to take Coke?

Needles on his skin – Everyday another poke.

Could something have pushed him to it?

What on earth made his heart Quit?

  *   *   *

Why is she “legless” always having a drink?

Why do you think she needs a shrink?

Could something be hurting her deep inside?

What in her, a long time died?

 *   *   *

Why does she want to look as thin as a pin?

Oblivious to the bones sticking out through her skin.

Could it be the one thing, she feels she can control?

Her family will be  shattered, if it takes her soul?

*   *   *  

Don’t point fingers at these  people

Or use them as a point of ridicule.

Look Deeper. Something could have happened inside

Look to help, before it ends in Suicide.

*   *   *

Ps. I apologise for the explicit picture – just bringing the message home.
