My pain and misery fall from the sky
So hard I try to ignore it, but it still gets by.
Surrounded with memories of what could have been,
The hatred screams under my skin.
Pulsing through my veins is the anger I feel.
Wounds break open as soon as they seal.

I laugh when people talk to me,
But inside I'm dying, wishing they could see
I'm as different inside as I am the same.
Wish they could see they're not to blame.
I know the truth, but it's locked in my heart,
And now more than ever, it's tearing me apart.

I spend most of my time alone. My memories are of crying all day. I was always insecure and judging myself but now I don't care about anyone but myself. As I'm about to spend my life alone without family or anyone.

This is how every day feels for me. It is a huge struggle to keep a smile on my face and it is hard to joke and laugh when I just want to curl up in a ball and cry.
