First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

Hello! I have NO idea how to do this blog thing, so be patient while I learn it please!!

I guess I will just start off my first blog post with the poem I love the most and that has gotten the most attention online.

Behind the Mask

Hiding the hurt, hiding the pain
Hiding the tears that fall like rain.
Saying I’m fine , when I’m anything but,
This ache In my soul rips at my gut.
My skin is on fire, I burn from within
The calm on my face is an ongoing sin.
The world must stay out, I’ve built up a wall
My fragile lie will collapse should it ever fall.
Loneliness consumes me, it eats away the years
Until my life is swallowed by unending fears.
Waiting for someone to see I wear a mask
And care enough to remove it, is that too much to ask?
