She found the courage to wake up with a smile on her face, knowing that no one would be able to notice what was buried beneath it all. She kept it locked inside; grasping that the only way to unlock it was to open up. But there was no one that would see past that smile that was sewn onto her flesh. But there came a little girl that was so far, lost in an endless abyss of nightmares. So silent, unable to open up to anyone, hurt by so many, and tormented by life’s game. They stumbled across one another and through their eyes they saw their refection. That little girl took the time to look into her eyes and found what was hidden deep inside. Yet through all of her mistakes, pain, and sadness that were hidden inside the smile, she looked past it all and found the beauty and joy. How was it possible? They came from different lives, but they knew that they couldn’t stand-alone, they needed each other. They both understood it was going to be hard to open up and get close, because they were both afraid of losing each other. But they know that they would always be there for each other, because the strength of their friendship was so mighty, it can withstand the darkest of times. But these words that are being read on this page can’t even describe what is hidden beneath their hearts.
