Army Mom’s Safe Haven

QUIET AS A MOUSE

I look the same
And I smile on the outside
and I laugh
I talk and read and
seem the same
I'm still "me" - I
still have the
same old name

But on the inside
I'm completely different
On the inside I am silent
I am as quiet as a small
brown mouse
I am afraid;
I am afraid that
they will take the house.
