Brave Smile

by SheaRyhai © 2009

Pretty face smiles through the tears

the bravest heart can lose to fears.

A laughing voice inside my mind

the key to freedom's hard to find.

Scars will never grace these wrists

against fates chains I still persist.

Dropped my mask and paid the cost

how by truth is so much lost?

Kiss the grave stone ghost goodbye

memories only can make me cry.

Hearing music from within my heart

madness keeps me from falling apart.

Done with pleasing a zombie mass

stepping over critics and through the glass.

Making a wish free from regret

thankful for a chance with who I've met.

This smile finds the strength to linger

the pen familiar between my fingers.

Time can change everything you see

but you decide who you want to be.

The rhythm peaceful in my chest

a crime to some that I can rest.

No day is the same if you look close,

your chance is blooming like a rose.

But if your still picking worms below,

then how is it you will ever know?
