The Blues | A Poem by Chris Byrne

It’s that indescribable feeling
Laughing and smiling one
Minute, then the concrete
Block lands on your head
Brain goes foggy, an unknown
Fear clouds the mind,
The weight of the world
Upon one’s shoulders,
Struggling to smile
Smiling all the while
Hiding behind a smile
Never wanting anyone
To see nor wanting them
To feel way you do,
Always smiling or trying
And then, just like that
It’s gone, the weight
Has been lifted.
