She smiles and walks along

Friends by her side, she tries to stay strong

She doesn’t really know how to say

But the voices in her head were a little loud that day


Alas, she laughs and acts as if it all was alright

Needless to say, they were happy at the sight

Their friend was smiling, her face alight!


Although she wanted to show the truth, she knew they couldn't understand

The sadness had returned, that funny feeling familiar as an old friend

The one you run into when you begin to forget their face

Yet the moment you see them, you are reminded of your past days


Whenever the sadness returned, she couldn’t believe she had ever forgotten

The feeling of the weight, and her insides feeling rotten

The lack of the desire to take care of herself

The hatred that would fester, it was all that she felt

So when she got home that day, she cried in her bed as she lay

Wondering why she was made that way
