MARILYN ANONA writes: We Cover UP (poetry)

We cover up with smiles and lies,
We hide our cheeks and cover our eyes,
This debt we pay to human deceitfulness,
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with countless subtleties.

Why should the world be over wise,
In counting all our tears and laments?
Rather, let them only see us, while
WE COVER UP!

We smile, but our cries from sad souls arise, when we are all alone,
We sing, but oh the earth is unpleasant,
Beneath our feet and the distance
But let the world dream otherwise,
WE COVER UP!
