Army Mom’s Safe Haven


I'd like to be in
for awhile -

Just be quiet
not have to smile

I don't feel
happy, just right now.
Don't want to fake it
anyhow -

Tired of bad luck
and sad things occurring.
Tired of being unhappy
and tired of worrying -

I'd like to live in
just for awhile, just so
enough time goes by to
feel happy again
if I can
until I can be myself -
the person you all
think you know.
