    I Wonder.

    So many things I do wonder. Things that play on my mind to often, that make so many lesions on my heart. It's all still new to me. Things I can hardly fathom. Kickin my sleep in the gut and my brains outta breathe. Where will things finally stand? I can't even take the smallest...

    Nonexistent

    There's one thing that I have felt through out my life, it's the one feeling that just absolutely gets under my skin. Being ignored by some one I dont know doesn't bother me to much but it irritates me. But when some one I care about does it, it's a different story. I absolutely...

    You Hide

    You hide behind your smile but you don't fool me. I know you feel like crying sometimes so instead you smile and laugh and then look the other way. He says ''you alright?'' and you reply ''yeh'' in this chirpy voice. But behind that chirp there is agony and sorrow ... something i...

    Not everyone is happy

    when they smile. Sometimes it takes all that person has to force out a smile and pretend that everything is alright when all they wanna do is cry or scream. Breathe out the bad and inhale the good. Let go of the bullshit and try to always be positive. Look at the brighter side...

     Your skin isn't paper,

    don't cut it. Your face isn't a mask, don't cover it. Your size isn't a book, don't judge it. Your life isn't a film, don't end it. You are beautiful the way you are .. :))

    Faking It...

    I do it. So I'm sure everyone else does. There are those days when you feel like crap and nothing can make you happy. The only reason you smile is if you're forced to be friendly. It comes out so fake. But most of the time people don't care, they just go about their day...

    Smiles Can Lie

    People smile through sadness and pain all the time. I know I do. Smiling takes up much less time and energy than crying. A smile can be a quick lie. I think when people laugh is when they are happy, even if the happiness is short lived. Laughing takes more time than a smile and...

    Faking It With The Best Of Them

    Just like everyone else, I hide behind fake smiles because it is easier than explaining my tears. I can be quite humorous when I want to be and I can make you laugh at the drop of a hat. However the fun girl with the twinkling eyes is the same girl that sometimes cries herself to...

    A Smile That Can Light Up A Room

    I've been told that I have a "smile that can light up a room," but to be honest, that smile hides so much. I find myself frequently smiling when I'm around others, but the truth is that inside, I don't always genuinely feel happy. I want to feel happy, I just don't seem to know...
