I Smile Back

I Smile Back

I wear a mask by smiling back

But underneath I'm about to crack

They all say that I"ll be okay

But I don't know if I'll live to see the next day

I try to move on and forget my pain

But in the end, I'm going insane

I pick my head up but the weight is heavy

Carrying my burdens, even when I'm not ready

The struggle is real, I cannot fall

So I smile and say it's nothing at all

    I cannot say I know your pain but I speak from my own personal pain. I spiritually let go and released all to highest power out in the universe and I found pure love. You are loved and thanks for sharing.

    I suffer from schizo effective tendencies, I hear voices really bad all the time, sometimes not the best voices either. I am suicidal when really depressed and instead of acting on the impulses I right it out in poetry. It sometimes helps to get it out of me constructively. I hope you enjoy and understand why I am so dark at times.

    Your not alone
