Pause

Why do i always wake up sad? 

Is it acceptable to be mad?

 

My head hurts.

But then again, what doesn't hurt.

 

I feel every emotion a person can feel.

Sometimes, nothing seems real.

I have to snap out of it and get ready for school. 

 

I try to look as best i can, ALWAYS.

 

Pulling up to school is the hardest part. 

My stomach is in knots,

My heart is about to beat out of my chest,

My legs are numb,

When is my body going to give it a rest?

 

Pause

 

Please hand me those tissues,

I'm so sorry I have these issues.

You shouldn't have to look after me like this.

But I can be such a good actress.

 

I walk into the school proudly with my chest out and a smile on my face.

Just smile, smile, smile.

Don't let your emotions get the best of you, try not to cry. 

This gets so tiring after a while. 

Just smile, smile, smile.
