As I look out to the street
I watch the people live
But I myself am dead inside
With nothing left to give

For sixteen years I've struggled
To stand up tall and proud
But something always knocks me down
Just a whisper in the crowd

For sixteen years I've struggled
To keep my dreams alive
Held on to every little hope
And pushed myself to strive

For sixteen years I've struggled
To keep that smiling face
Even when I saw my life
As just one big disgrace

For sixteen years I've struggled
Now the tears just flow so free
I'm sick of putting on this act
This happiness Isn't me

For sixteen years I've struggled
But now I'm letting go
I'm done with holding back the pain
It's time I let it show.

Wow!! This is beautiful...It makes me so proud of you..for not holding back the pain anymore. I've been doing that. Forcing a smile everyday to hide the struggle. This is very good and I hope things turn out for the better for you.
