When will it be ok?

Behind the smile, underneath all the make-up,
There is a sad, sad girl who is trying desperately to hide her feelings.
But with each day passing, it gets harder and harder.
The smile is force and noticeable.
The make-up cannot hide the dark, sad eyes on her pale face.
With each night passing by,
She tosses and turns.
Only to wake up in the middle of the night.

What caused this girl so much pain? So much agony,
Where she cannot sleep at night?
The answer is simple,
The answer is Heart-breaking.
The answer is her life, her family.

The family that everyone thought to be happy and together,
Is now apart and mean.
They're not together anymore,
And are trying to get us against one another.
What happened to set this off?

No one knows.
The questions that matters are,
Can they live through this?
Can everything be ok like it used to be?... Just different?
Will we have to live in fear the rest of our lives?

When will it be ok?

My parents are still together, but I know that I've felt like this over other things. There is so much meaning here, and it would appeal to so many people. I love it.
