” Say Cheese”…

Age 8

School photograph

“Say Cheese”

And dutifully I did

I grinned from ear to ear

The widest grin

There has ever been

Because I wanted to please them


I never wanted to worry them

But I did

I withdrew so far away

To a place I barricaded myself

Within the isolation that was myself

I was grinning no more
