Poem By Mary Wismer
Can I ask you honestly
Is this how you meant to be?
Are you happy with your life?
Was it worth to search and strive?
Did you have to quick your dreams?
Was it harder than it seems?
Did you stumble, did you fall?
Did you never doubt at all?
Did you take what you could get?
Is there something you regret?
Did you bend and did you break?
How much of your smile is Fake?
Tell me what I need to hear,
Lie to me, and ease my fear,
Please don’t ask me how I feel,
That was not part of the deal.
