the good of the many

valiant is the effort
she makes each ‘n every day
to keep that smile
that sparkle
to push the darkness away

heroic is the motion
just getting out of bed
“yeah I’m good”
“course I’m okay”
ignoring all that causes dread

now that smiles are hidden
voices muffled
faces masked
to her, it’s important
that she do as she is asked
