In this world
there are few things
to rely on
pillars of strength
are few and far between
and Iím not one for leaning.

In younger days
I searched diligently
for the good in others
now I wonder,
is this a facade...
what lurks underneath it?

Jaded thoughts...
born of misty, fresh days
a long ago girlhood
plagued with contradiction
between romance
and stark reality.

Give me a well developed
sense of humor
one who can chuckle
at themselves,
as well as others
and I will feel affinity.

Jana,

I think there are times when we all wonder what lurks beneath the surface of those we encounter.  There are a lot of people who will only show you what you want to see...their real selves are hidden deep inside the mask they wear.  Makes you wonder if they ever take it off?  Great piece and I look forward to reading more of your work.

Welcome to Passions!!
