Her body moves with strength and purpose
as her somber soul watches the charade

Her body sees clearly all the things of the day
while her soul blinded by weariness
takes no notice

Her body hears the sounds of life around her
As her soul deafened by daily turmoil
huddles in silent space

She speaks...she smiles...she laughs
her soul hides in darkness...
waiting for the light

I feel as if you have written about me, this is me. How did you do this!

It is one of the hardest things to do, present a facade of normality to the world when you are hurting inside. The next hardest thing to do is describe it so eloquently...
Best wishes Pat,

A somber, blind, deaf, wounded soul has its work cut out for it. There are various charitable organizations to help with two of the four symptoms, and the ER can patch up wounds, but somber? Oh no, you have to fix that yourself:-) Patrick

This is really powerful, Pat.
You write of it so well, and it takes so painfully long to heal sometimes!
