So hard

It's so hard to be stone:
To keep your feelings in
And let yourself be known.

It's so hard to be seen:
To overcome the hurt
And show them what you mean.

It's so hard to pretend:
Live like everyday
Is never meant to end.

It's so hard to cry
When people are watching
Everything you try.

It's so hard not to care,
Facing the truth lying
Beneath the mask you wear.

It's so hard to fly,
When the sky's holding you down,
Watching the rest pass by.

It's so hard to see
Through the opaque walls
Built around you and me.

Well yes, it's hard to live
With only shallow hopes
That people can give.

You're right, living is hard, but with God it can all be made lighter to bare.  :)  I'm about to submit a poem i wrote last night, and it talks about difficulties too.
