Hiding Bits

she's laughing.

she's smiling.

you think she's alright.

look between her past

and you will think

"oh, what a life":

A father shot and killed

at age 3.

stayed strong at age 9-10

then finally cutting.

then stopped at age 13

she's laughing.

she's smiling.

at the fact that she's hiding.
