'Veneer'

Written by: Wilma Neels


In the dark I see you clearly Images your hardly Ever share with the world Why be gentle in the dark When others think you are hardened That your emotions Were extricated at birth Two complete opposites Gentle versus rough Stone faced With signs that if you smile In the daylight Your face might crack I see you smile all the time Behind closed doors Behind the four walls Almost like you are afraid The world might see The gem I have uncovered It is a joy to see you laugh To hear that giggle I reckon it is about time You show the world the gentle side of you
