Smile Through the Pain

Little girl, why so sad?
Tired of being pushed down again and again?
Well my dear there’s a simple solution,
no, no, you won’t go mad.
It’s simple really, but you mustn’t be fooled,
for it will take everything you know and completely rule.
You will wake up every morning with tear stained eyes,
Rub them dry, you mustn’t cry.
Hide the black circles under those eyes,
concealer here, glitter there,
who the hell even cares?
You must hid your feelings from everyone.
You will lie and cheat your way through life.
Skip a meal, fail a class,
why do you even try to pass?
You are nothing but a failure, this is who you are
This is the new you,
This is what you wanted.
And once you realize that this is who you’ve become,
you come to terms with the fact that this is how life will always be.
So you get up, and smile through the pain.
Why? Because there’s no one left to blame.
