    Fed Up!

    I'm so fed up of putting on a pretend smile so no one can see how broken I feel inside. I try to say I'm ok, but I'm not and it would be so good for me to say, 'no, I'm not ok, actually' but most people aren't interested anyway, so I'll just have to keep on faking my smiles till...
