The Nightmare Smile

Tue, 02/13/2018 - 10:49 -- Kenzee

My day is not like anyone else's

No one understands what I go through

Everyone sees a smile but it’s just a mask

They think I shouldn’t have anything to worry about

But I do.

The screaming and the pain is unbearable

The steady “chores”

Running the house isn’t easy

Cooking, cleaning, taking care of everyone

No matter how much I do it’s never enough

I’m never enough

I’m not enough

The pain is immense and extensive

I don’t do enough

I’m told constantly i’m useless,

Lazy, worthless…

There is only one person that thinks I am enough

My saving grace, my everything

The one that puts an honest smile on my face

And lets me know I am worth It

I love him so much

He’s is worth everything I go through.
