Fake It

How many fake smiles

Have you put on before?

When inside your beating heart

Is broken and torn.

How many tears 

Has your pillow held at night?

When you lay there, broken,

Hidden from everyone's sight.

How many attempts

At your life have you taken?

They don't see that you're broken,

Not only bruised but emotionally beaten.

Pain is innevitable,

These feelings you hold.

But you'll tell them you're fine

'Cause that's what you've been told.
