"Titles are Overrated"


Now.
As hollow smiles collect
Forging the façade you live,
Your strength withers,
But determination flares.
And burdened with false courage
The seams you’ve sewn loosen,
Dissolving in the tears
You rarely cry
Because they defeat you.
And.
The war you’ve waged
Is losing your favor
As the happiness you play
And the tears you hide
Consume from both fronts of this battle.
And as much as I care for you
I doubt you’ll ever see,
Until it’s too late,
That you can’t and never had to
Do it by yourself,
Forever.
