Better off.

Better off what?



In between?

The statement,

is a question.

I am better off.

Without you.

I am better off


The only thing left.

In this world For me,

Is these words I write.

I may be

The perfect student.

And daughter.

The perfect friend.

The turn to person.

The happiest person you know.

At least that what it seems.

I seem Happy all the time

But truthfully,

I haven't smiled for real

since I can remember.

Laughter isn't the best medicine.

But the best disguise.

I am a great Actor

You didn't know that

Because you thought.

that this is me.

And not fake.

I am the saddest person you know.

The smartest person

The nicest person

The bravest person.

I am the scarcest person,

If you truly knew me.

You'd hug me

and say the simple words

"I am here"

Very few.

Have said these words.

Very few

Know of the me that is real.

I hope that you never learn.

About this me.

But here

I am

Living the only way I know how

Telling you about the true me

the sad me.

Don't pity me.

Just talk to me

Like I am a person

not another Mad Person.

I am real

I am true

I am strong.

I am better off...
