I’m okay

I may not act like it

But I am

I can do this on my own

Keep myself sane

So I don’t lose control

Every day, acting like it’s fine

Until at night, with my glasses of wine

I can try to enjoy


Sorry that I’m at my limit

I’ll be okay

Just like I said

Don’t worry

I won’t end up dead

I’ll suffer with this life that’s great


Avoiding the meals that I should have ate

I’m sorry that I am this way

Sorry that I never liked this day

I wish I could

I wish I would

I wish that I was better


Laughter isn’t real

It’s just a show

I never wanted this, you know

My life is fantastic

It’s just me who’s feeling like plastic

Exaggerating, making it drastic

Never again will I take happiness for granted

Feelings that I wish could be planted

I miss it

I miss everything I had

It was never meant to be this way

I want my friends around

I do

I really do

But most of the time, it’s so much

So crowded

So much to handle

It’s like something bad is going to happen

But everything is good
