Things aren't always as they seem (Poem).

Things aren't always as they seem


She struts through the day like cakewalk,

But only the night knows her well,

The day's a tunnel vision, 

She's the life of the party,

A tower of strength,

SΓΊper mujer!

Only the night knows her truth,

Mamma Mia! 

Daytime shenanigans,

 Obeisance of the night,

 Knees  cuddled up to her chest,

Smiles smothered in teardrops,

Sipping bitter wine,

Clutching musty cigarettes,

Ugly cries,

Truth conquers lies,

 The skeletons  come out of her closet,

Ain't no laughter for her puppet show, 

Every heart knows its sorrow,

Things aren't always as they seem,

She smiles above the pain,

A warrior at daylight, but

Only the night knows her well!

Many a man his life hath sold

Gilded tombs do worms enfold.”
