  1. Why

    Pondering Life

    Why do we begin if we don't plan to finish?
    Why do we love if we don't want to get hurt?
    Why do we live if someday we must die?
    Why do we smile if we really hurt inside?

    Poem About Finding Myself

    Who am I, you ask?
    I am a lion who comes off as a lamb.

    My face is the place
    I hide my pain.
    My face is a place
    Where raindrops fall hiding the tears that have been there for so many years.

  6. The Mask

    • By Lisa Willhite
    • Published: August 2008

    Existing in the realm of its own true hell,
    the pacing of the parasite begins to swell.
    It suffers in silence, yet demands to be heard.
    It will never survive without its bevy of words.
