I am Strong


I always smile on the outside,
But my true feelings are deep inside.
Sitting there quietly as they hide;
They don't want anyone to know the 
Pain,they don't want anyone to see the strain,
so my feelings they smile
Yet the inside is just so vile
Smiles diminish the negatives 
And extrude the pursuit of happiness
So that gives me the prerogative 
To hide my ailing sadness
My smile is so eloquently spoken
And no one can see that I'm broken
So life will keep moving on,
Because my heart knows I am strong.
