Wrong Way AroundĀ 

I’d always thought 
Myself as being strong

In fact, opposite were true
Thoughts kept secret

Locked safely away

Inner emotions unharmed
Pain and suffering

Handled alone, quietly

Unable to burden others

Problems which are my own
In my eyes

I thought I was being strong
In others eyes

I was pushing them away
Withdrawing from everyone

Refusing anyone near

Only wanting to protect them

Hurting them instead

Of protecting them from the pain
Instead of being strong

Weak is closer to reality

Wrong way around
Happiness is to be shared

Even sadness and hurt

Especially those love ones

They feel your pain anyway

World Of IllusionsĀ 

Protective barriers

Installed subconsciously

Fragile yet holds firmly
Within the confines

Ignorance is truly blessed

Eyes which can not see

Ears which can not hear

An illusion cast aside
Light and dark

Can’t exist without another
Fear is dream’s shadow

Sadness an companion to happiness
Wall upon walls of illusion

Minimize confusion

In the midst of everyday life

Remember; our world is large
