I'll Be Okay

September 17, 2008
By Elizabeth Smith, Cincinnati, OH

i'll spray a smile opon my face
knowing it ain't gon do a single thing
and i'll keep on going on with my day
walkin' in a big ol cloud of shame

i'm cryin' on the inside
smilin' on the out
and every night i can't help but cry
and wonder why life just a bunch of lies
and why can't anyone hear the good girl cry

i try to tell myself i'll be okay
if i hold my tears in everyday
and put this on my face
and pretend everything is okay
i'll be okay
