#365poems--We Live Two Lives

We live two.lives, most of us;
One without and one within.
The one that goes to work,
Talks to other parents at the school,
and clerks at the grocery store.
You cannot be just this person
Or your soul will die.

Then there is the life
That is inside your heart and mind:
The books you read,
The poems you write,
The thoughts you have.
You can be just this person
But you will be alone indeed.

But perhaps if you are lucky
You cand find that safe space.
Those special few who uunderstand,
Who see beneath the outer you
And understand it too;
And will help the inner life
See the light of day.
