    Could not resist this one – enticing mix

    How we folks on the pavement can be fooled!
    Awestruck, we take in the aura of a man
    in receipt of seemingly everything cool:
    richer than a king, handsome, slim, tanned.

    In our meager lives we don’t begrudge him,
    Though our envy tends to grow like fire,
    Spilling into realms where hope is dim.
    We’re not pleased to see our dreams, our deep desires

    ascend in smoke. Nor do we see his background,
    that which our eyes are never privy to.
    We see his majestic steps when he walks the town
    But the pain he hides? We haven’t got a clue.

    We tend to live our lives in parallel:
    What others see need not be what’s real.
    Life’s a game of Conceal or Show and Tell.
    A man who has it all may heartaches feel.

    Why else would Cory muster all his nerve
    to end his regal life? What good could it have served?

      Life’s a game of Conceal or Show and Tell.
      A man who has it all may heartaches feel.

      Such a heart-rending question posed there at the end. Powerful story-telling. We never really know what goes on in other people’s hearts not even in their lives and yet we often judge them

        That is so true! For that reason we should never judge the inner workings of another’s heart or assume he or she is strong enough or faith-fortified enough to overcome the loss of hope.
