Compensate

Always a pressing debt to pay,
a role to play,
great lines to say.


A hidden little nook to fill,
swallow the pill,
strengthens all will
.

A painted smile stained solemn face,
run in the race,
legs locked in place.

No one is ever quite enough,
no longer tough,
life was too rough
.

“I love you” is another phrase,
feelings convey,
causing a sway.


First-place can never come in last,
it happened fast,
forgotten past.

A new beginning chases clouds,
Sun shines around,
light takes a bow
.
