Please don’t give up.

Please don’t give up.

(Featured in fine print below) 

 

The only honesty
I speak
is in poetry.
You see,
as a woman
I’ve learned
it doesn’t serve me—
easier swallowing my words,
and smiling sweetly.
Hiding the truth
inside discreetly,
putting the pressure
as a result
in a box,
tucked away neatly.
Telling myself
alone in the car
“You can cry,
but only briefly,
because you have
responsibilities
depending on you
completely;
and the pain
you feel right now—
you can feel it
so deeply,
but the funny thing
about emotions are—
they can be
rather fleeting.
So just breathe
and remember,
you have the power
of determining
the reasons
why;
it happened this way,
and maybe you’re right—
it can’t be changed,
but I believe—
in spite of all of this,
you’ll find a way
through the dark
of the night,
towards a brighter day.
Illegitimi non carborundum”
