The Truth

Sat, 12/13/2014 - 21:16 -- tmitch

I am a woman who tries to be the best that I can be.

I hide the darkness inside so that no one can see.

The struggle is different each and every day.

Yet I continue to tell everyone that I am perfectly okay.

Some days are worse than others of course

The darkness tries to consume me and things take a turn for the worst.

I always laugh and I always smile,

But I am afraid that the cover only lasts for a while.

I told myself that I would never give up on life

So I find the beauty in everything, and that is quite nice.
