It hurt even to crack a smile
Or part my lips to speak,
So parched I was,
That I could not bear others
To see me so weak,
So I tried my best to cover up
The infirmity of late,
Summoning all remaining hope
Per chance to change this state…

So many steps taken backward
And not easily regained,
The pace forward
That did need to be hastened,
Sparing life severely strained.
So, I resigned to be patient,
A doleful while longer
And daring not to be recognized,
I hid until I grew stronger…

Romeo-New York City
