Behind the Curtain

40° 2' 19.0644" N, 105° 22' 18.0048" W

Quick with a joke and full of hope

Quirks and a smile that will stay for awhile

Love for music, love for people

Love for treating humans equal

A trembling hand can not pull back

the curtain that hides all but a crack

Fear will stop a beating heart

from showing every single part
