Poem - Smile as a Mask

The poem "Smile as a Mask" is about the overshadowing of fatality based ideation.

Smile as a Mask

Fatality is the sure mindset
this knowing that all will end
in the sooner of time's refrain
than the latter of best-case

this insistence that won't abate
knowing there is a fate
inscribed in stone honed from angst
an exit assured as the last escape

insurance cast as surety
inescapable lest hope spring
that something else may transpire
to shift a mind that conspires

plotting against welfare's cause
the long view now surely lost
this is the doom without respite
with the smile maintained as a mask.
