his smile became an imitation
of what it once was.
Distorted into a framed display
to serve as his shield.
With his hooded facade he leans his back against the wall
for fear of what others would say behind it
as Resent festers in his heart
like a Sickness Slowly Seeping
into his Somber soul.

Yet, it has always been her alluring smile
that eased his heavy heart.
It has always been the softness of her voice
and her delicate touch
that broke down the barricades built out of fear.
Soon he to took on a softness that revived
a glimmer of
a smile that once was.

As His heart began to heal she showed Him
a place of Love.
No longer alone amidst a mass of "friends"
resentment replaced with Surrender
,sickness shifted to Strength.
While a somber soul starts to smile
with a Joy greater than it's ever known

This is a story of how I was alone in the world and how I was lead to a better place that remained long after the people I had lost, who had brought me there.
