Wasted Years. Silent Tears

With smile well fixed so no one knew

Just how that soul could be so blue

A trick well mastered through the years

An expert at hiding the silent tears.


Tears for all that had been lost

Regrets, mistakes, all at a cost.

At times there were some tears of joy,

But alas were rare in their employ.


A soul that strived to simply fit

Though never would become  a hit

With those whose aim was to conspire

To keep this soul an outlier.


The pain was real, the memories deep

Destroying peace and stealing sleep.

No middle ground for those wasted years

The smile still hides those silent tears.
