Failing Mask

Poem By Eric Mills

I wear a clay mask
A mask of strength and happiness
That its true task
Is to cover my true sadness
A loss so deep and discerning
It makes my body yearning
For something to fill this void
That seems to always loid
Around my broken heart of despair
Yet so many people seem to care
Its pain is still so very deep
Of a loss I wish to not ever seek
So I wear this mask of happiness and strength
For I know its job will soon fall to length
For all the sadness and pain I have endured
This mask is going to fall
As a building to tall
So I know
It will shatter and fall
So I pray for you all
That you will not fall
To such a loss of mine
So terrible in mind

Surfing is like gliding on an endless sea
Life troubles seem to escape me
Surfing is like an anchor to my heart
Always with me never letting me drift apart

a red rose
always keeps a pose
so pure and divine
so many things come to mind
