I’m exhausted
Exhausted of keeping up this façade,
Of trying to be happy
When I know I’m not
Tired of putting up a smile
When I only want to frown
I’m sick of forcing myself to laugh
When I actually feel like sobbing
I’m weary of trying to hide my tears
Crying in a bathroom, hoping no one hears
How long will this go on
Does this sorrowful cycle have no end?

Awww... that's so sad!! But very well written, also, and very easy to connect with. It made me want to cry. Wonderful poem.
