    Wind so cold, ice on the streets,
    Alone in the night, hearing others' voices
    Like they can't even feel the cold, cold wind
    A group of people, in circle, laugh and talk
    They look so happy, I wonder if it's true
    Or all of them hide something behind their happy voices?
    Fears maybe? Untold desires?
    Or maybe dreams they know will never come true?
    I will never know, I've left them behind.
    Now, it's only silence and darkness.
    This night hides no fairy tales, no answers come from the sky
    Still, in the cold wind, I feel so.......alive

    Welcome to Destee Flavia
    The other side of night is a great poem and flow.
    It is deep and thought provoking

    This quote made me reflect on Paul Laurence Dunbar's poem. "We Wear the Mask"

    Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)
