TRIALS OF SHAME

Written by: Donn Ronquillo

hiding behind a mask of failure,
alluring to the eyes being shown.
fear of denial,
too much like a life's trial.
running on being like a loose coward,
always faking the courage of being brave.
simply not believing on yourself;
too many masks over the faking of shame,
unknown disappointments falling for me.
running out of tears to dry,
no right words for this to go away.
unworthy truth of a lie....
like a light with no direct ray,
moving forward is too impossible and out of sight.
