Poem: Functional

Functional
Functional
Put on a mask.
Smile.
Blend in.
But different under the skin.
Writhing, seething, beast of pain within.
Adjust the mask.
Smile.
Functional.
I am trying very hard to be functional lately. And it isn’t working well. But I hide all that pain beneath a well crafted mask. Doesn’t change the fact functioning is very difficult to manage with pain.
