    Smile

    I smile even though I want to cry
    I smile so no one knows what's inside
    I smile and laugh even though i'm sad so you will never know my true emotions

    Why can't I say when someone hurts me or makes me mad?
    why can't I cry when I am sad?
    Something inside is afraid, afraid of what, I don't know

    I pray to God to help me and
    To let me take his gentle hand
    To grant me the serenity
    to let out what's inside of me

    And so today I pray
    that the Lord will always stay
    In my smile to make it real
    In my smile so he can heal
    The scars and wounds inside that wont go away
    So please, please Jesus please always stay

    In my smile

    This is a poem from my youth, exactly how I was feeling at the time, while I was still trying to fugure myself out. Thanks for the feedback!! :)

    always keep the smile...

    be wary of those that smile
    in your face and behind your back they talk trash
    cause they'll try to take you down
    where they are going
    fast...

    keep it coming...
    peace
