On The Surface

On the surface it seems everything’s contained
In the eyes it looks like I’m brave
Anger seems restrained and nothing I can’t sustain

On the surface it seems everything’s the same
That I’m not losing my mind, I’m sane
Can carry a load never to complain

But take my hand and learn one day
That inside I’m raging with worry and angst
I’m barely holding on for your sake

On the surface it appears I’m always able to assuage
Never frayed always on the same page
Goals assigned and my mind constantly engaged

But take my hand and learn one day
That inside I’m raging with worry and angst
I’m barely holding on for your sake
Decisions are never easily made

All in due time
My children, that truth you’ll find

On the surface it seems I’m never afraid
Leading on the charge this way
I’m standing strong but my kids, it’s all wrong
Below the surface I’m really just afraid

But take my hand and learn one day
You’ll have the same worry and same angst
Barely holding on, for your children’s sake
Decisions are never easily made

All in due time
My children, that truth you’ll find
