Slap on a Smile

Location

Hiding behind a smile is exhausting

But I'm exhausted anyways

Eternally tired

No relief

I need sleep

But no amount of sleep is enough

I just want to feel normal

But I'm not

Self-hate

Self-harm

But the world doesn't know

So I have to slap on a smile

For the world
