    Can't Do This

    I've been trying my hardest to get better and to fix my life, but it seems like I am unable to change anything. The more I try the more I fail. I always wear that stupid smile, pretending I'm alright, giving hope to my family and friends and of course to my lover, but I feel...

    Don't Know What To Do..

    Yesterday night my husband tried to make me talk about how i felt. Wanted me to tell him my deepest thoughts, fears and feelings, though I never do that. He told me he knows I'm wearing a smile, which makes him happy, but knowing I'm not honest and hide my pain makes him hurt. I...

    Not everyone means to understand the other

    and people dislike negative energy. Over time, I have learnt that telling to people about my true feeling is meaningless and may even lead to some sarcastic comments..

    I was once sad and lonely,

    Having nobody to comfort me, So I wore a mask that always smiled; To hide my feelings behind a lie. Before long, I had many friends; With my mask, I was one of them. But deep inside, I still felt empty, Like I was missing a part of me. Nobody could hear my cries at night For I...

    Climbing The Step

    Um... This is a poem I wrote. It's pretty personal if you can get past the metaphors or stuff like that. It's called Climbing The Step. I'm going to put it in the school's poetry contest. Here it goes... Hateful words pang at my heart as I step up, so I topple back down. Will...

    There's so much to talk about it actually.

    Because for me it's always have been hard to express what I feel, what I get through of, what I live. It's just hard so I put a smile on me, pretend like everything is okay. every day, every morning I have to do this because of the ones I love and care about. For them not to...

    My entire life no matter what I'm dealing with.

    Whatever challenges I am facing. I have always kept a smile. If they only knew what was really under that smile. I don't for myself but , mainly for others walking around looking how I feel wouldn't be worth my while.

    I was born with a mental disorder,

    and as a result I never had many friends growing up. And even those I did have eventually left me. As a result I don't really get things as easily as most people. That really showed today. These two girls I'm in a club with were having a conversation, and I was all alone so I...
