    Mastered Not To Cry

    i never tell anyone how I really feel. I mastered not to cry and hide those tears, like my heart is going to burst for hiding so much pain, grief, sorrow. And even if I want to cry, no tears are coming out.   I want to be strong for my family 'cause we are in the...

    I'm tired of lying to people about how I'm

    really feeling, but I'm afraid no one would care to know the truth. Or that telling someone won't change a thing.!

    Dying Inside

    Every day I feel as if a little part of me dies. The darkness seems to close in on my life, and I have started cutting my skin to make sure that I can still feel. I put on a facade during the school day, but during the night I cry and feel as if something is tearing me apart...

    Veil

    I wear a veil that hides my true emotions. I do it so well that I forget about them until they resurface and slap me in the face with reality.

    Don't Want People to Worry

    I know people who openly express how they are feeling to everyone and they constantly get attention. As much as I wish I'd get attention like that sometimes, most of the time I'm glad that I don't. The problem is that people don't leave you alone if you are constantly...

    I am known as the happy, smiley girl at work but that's so far from the truth. I HAVE to be this way as I work with kids and I also don't want others knowing how I truly feel as I don't trust them. I don't trust them enough to let them in. I feel I have so many secrets and pain...
