The Actress

The Actress

She's the actress
she holds her head high
holding inside her cries
slowly walking about
as if it's all "okay"
knowing full well
it's not that way
but she must
if she's to survive
and stay alive......

Her protection of armor
like army angels
all around her
steadfast and ready
for what may occur
and to remain steady
and "calm"
pretend nothing is wrong...
yes....she's the actress
accustomed to the dance
and the art of circumstance

I have no words to describe how relief I am that you're back. Hope all is well.

This post it beautiful. It is sincere, directly from the heart.

Have a good and restful weekend.

I'm glad that you at least checked in. I'm hoping things are starting to look up at least.
