Life never seems simple

Every day I fake dimples

To bury a secret

So no one can read it

If I could

You know I would

I am about to break

And you just take and take

I don't need peace

When you take pieces

Of me

Please don't turn out the light

Everything is not... alright

Life is a race

I cannot keep the pace

People ask what I am doing

But I am not sure where I am going

People think I am flying

On the inside I am dying

This is my knife

Deep into my life

It's hard to pretend

When I see no end

Do not tell me to pray

When I struggle day by day

Life is not simple

So I fake dimples

This is what you feel like every day when you suffer from the metal illness I suffered from.
