I Am Grateful

Nothing can be more humbling and wise
Than a few blank faces spewing hatred through their eyes
At the very sight of your grin, your smile,
Your laughter
It's my place on this earth to play
“Love, it hurts”
Just as much as it is mine to hide my face
In the presence of someone’s fear to go off stage
But pretend, pretend
It is the message at hand because
No matter how breathtaking our performances
In this part of the play,
No tear, no wound, no scar, no heartache
Can steal the truth  
That I will always remain
