Poem Hunter
(7 January 1820 – 28 May 1849 / Thornton, West Riding of Yorkshire, England)


Poem By Anne Brontë

Yes I will take a cheerful tone
And feign to share their heartless glee,
But I would rather weep alone
Than laugh amid their revelry.

Often we have to force a smile on the face backed by a heart in grief. Beautiful poem describing the hypocrisy forced on us.
Yes, indeed. We have all been there, putting on the social laughing face when we feel least like laughing but society's social mores leaves us no way out
