Don't make somebody your priority if you're just their option.

I say I'm living, I say I'm happy, but I've come to the point where I'm really not living at all.
I'm bound with secrets, and pain.
I never new what happy was.
I'm trapped in a shell all day,
I won't let people see the real me. Why do people ask me what's wrong? It's not like they really care.
Why can't I get rid of the hurt and pain?
They say it's because life isn't fair.
Is this just a phase?
Is this something that's happening to make me stronger, or is this just my life?
I know I'm living, but why don't I feel like I'm alive?
To be living is to just have life and exsistence, but to be alive is to be full of energy and spirit, being alive is to have hope.
Maybe someday I'll feel like I have that, because to live doesn't mean you're alive.

The author's comments:
This poem is not personal. This poem is for anyone that feels down, or like they don't truly know what happy is. This poem is to let people know to come out of their shell and just be who they are. Let go of all the negative things in life, and focus on what makes you happy, so you can feel like you're alive. (:
