Can't hide everything.
I stand here smiling at you.
I look so bright from head to shoe,
But what you don't see
Is that I don't feel this free.
I feel like I'm trapped in an endless emotional jail.
My life has been a fail.
I'm losing everything,
And it hurts more than a bee sting.
I might comment "haha" on Facebook,
But I'm really just crying, and you don't care to look.
But as I whine and sob,
It's not really my job
To cry and cry
Until it hurts my eyes
Because there is no reason to cry,
"Oh my, oh my,"
Because when you look at what you do own,
You will hear no more groans.
God have given me so much,
And just by his touch
I am healed.
Poem About Breaking Free From Depression
Every morning like one puts on make up I put on the "I'm fine" mask and wear all day. It fools most people. But not yourself. At the end of the day I get to my bed and cry my heart out....
The Mask Can't Hide Everything
