How Are You

Those for whom

Dawn is just

A reminder 

For the struggles ahead

Responding to the greeting

How are you

Is just a luxury

A moment wasted

In daily grind

Heroes are they

Whose face lights up

Responding with a smile

I am well

How are you


Behind The Mask: Three Line Tales, Week 71

Behind the mask is hidden a story, a secret shared only with me
Clowning makes the world laugh with a smile as wide as can be
Leaving everybody happy my sorrows will go to the grave with me
