Faces Along The Way

The rigid fanfare

from those we call friends

can turn us grim

but the world cares not.

It berates the soul

as does the rain the ground.

We walk over peaks

to see more adversity found.

Shall we be polite

as if ladies and gentleman?

Tell me how you

might seek softness of warmth?

That would take

a lowly broken hand or member

that needs aid

in those cold days of December?

Deny those who

can only see you at the surface

entry to your realm.

Or burned you will

be by advantageous deceptors.

Of the trek that

seeks trails up into the peaks

never forget will I

my soul decides which to endeavor.

    1. My dear I dont have the words to express how thankful I am for you. You are encouraging and supportive of just a little thing I’m doing to self analyze and help cope with life. Youre a sweetheart and my heart and thoughts are with you. I’m honored by your appreciation and it has made me feel like a better version of myself. Thank you dear friend.
