You listen to conversations
with a smile on your face.
But if only they could see inside
your weary mind.
Where somedays it feels
there is no one or nowhere
to live your truth.
There’s only the shame you carry
of hiding and numbing yourself.
Not wanting to shatter the
illusions of your envious life!
Though we live in a time
where we must not assume.
Even the seemingly brightest stars
can be fighting a battle within..
