There are a lot of things you cannot see,
Like how many things are wrong with me.
I put on a happy face just for show,
But what I really struggle with, some people don't know.
It is easy to see and judge books by their covers
But there are numerous ways that you can impact others.
I have struggled with death and suicide,
But for so long, this I have had to hide.
Everyone knows me as the optimist
But without me telling people, you would just get the gist
of who I seem to be, which has been totally wrong.
No one found out because I held it in for so long.
But now I have gotten help so now you can see,
Only one thing that is wrong with me.
