How Many

How many people

Suffer

In silence

Everyday

How many people

Don’t wear their struggles on their sleeves

But bear them deep down inside

Alone

How many people

Seem

Perfect

On the outside

How many people

Would rather forge on a path of solitude

Steely to observers but crumpled down

Inside

How many people

Fight

Fists flying

Quietly

How many people

Hide behind smoke and mirrors

Careers and academia

Wedding bands and baby carriages

Investments and couture

Trappings of perfection

Shadows of ourselves
