    Pain Of Awareness

    Every time I am in the midst of happiness,

    In The Tears

    I am not who I used to be. I don't see with the same eyes. I don't laugh with the same smile. I don't open as many doors. I don't trust many people. I don't smile for everyone. I don't make everyone happy like I used to. I've changed. I can't remember when. I've cried so many...
