Obscured Extremities

A life that is simultaneously
The best and worst of times
Knee deep in lies
Send out the spies
There’s much from you I hide.

The smiling face of pleasantry
Obscures the doubt and fear

The beads of sweat along a face
Drown out the joyful cheers

Yet even so, both good and bad
Are at extremes almost every day
Such joy I hide
While fear subside
For soon, no need to lie.
