Social Graces

Women Who Think Too Much by Jeanne Marie

Can you see the anguish
When you look at my face?
Does the makeup really cover
My tears, not leaving a trace?
I look pretty, but look again
The hurt’s tearing at me,
Will this pain at last take over?
Is joyless all I’ll ever be?
I’m walking around in shock
Curl my hair, get ready to go
Put the pain away, put on a smile
Look my best, so you won’t know.
If you were in my place
You’d know why I prepare,
It’s all in the game of social graces
I was taught to hide, not to share.

Jeanne Marie
