I can't tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.














~ Ed Sheeran


if you look at my smile
you will see a happy girl.
if you look at my life
you will see a strong girl.

they say that the
eyes
are the windows to the
soul,

if you look
through
those windows,
you may see what's there.
or what's not.

you could tear away the
mask,
find the horrible
beast
that feasts on the
pain inside,
but most

continue
to never look past
the façade

until it's too late.

if you look at my smile,
you will see a happy girl.
if you look at my life,
you will see a strong girl.

if you look into my eyes,
you will see a broken girl.
