I can force a laughter.

I can fake a smile.

I can hold it all together.

Even for more than a while.

 

I can pretend and play the part.

Silently screaming inside.

Hiding the pain in my heart.

So the worry won't occur your mind.

 

But everyday by the nightfall.

In the dark on my own.

I think about it all.

The fight for you is all I've ever known.

 

I fought and I sacrificed.

Just to make sure you're satisfied.

 

I can bite my tongue.

Not try to say a word.

I can wait for so long.

For what I'm searching for in this world.

 

But I'm a human being.

Not a heartless machine.

 

My heart is not made of stone.

I can bleed and fall to the ground.

I can weep when I feel alone.

As I can smile for real and spin around.

Even laugh when I'm on my own.

 

Because I'm a human being.

Not a heartless machine.

"I put myself in her shoes. Try to see life through her eyes..."

This is about someone we take for granted. We just don't realize how lucky we are to have such a carring and kind person who always looks after us, and no matter what, always puts us on the top of the list. This person would give up everything just to see us happy. Just remember that this special person here is also a human being, who has feelings and dreams and gets hurt when no one cares in return. I hope it reaches your hearts guys ^_^

Exactly yup...We all feel this way once in a while, like a robot or a machine controlled by people's thoughts and orders. But now that I realized that I'm a human being, I know that sometimes it is okay to speak up and let my voice be heard, right?! ^_^ Thank you so much for the support, it means a lot to me when people do relate to my poems and agree with what I share so Thanks :)

TheComet, I'm so sorry my reply is late. :( But what I wanted to say, everytime we've talked you have always helped and inspired me. :) Thank you so much, my sister. I'm also, very very glad, that we met on Teen Ink too. :) I too also, can't imagine Teen Ink without you. ^_^ You're welcome, though I feel like I should be thanking you. ^_^ I pray too and hope that we'll be able to meet too. :) I love you, my dear sister and friend. Thank you so much, again. ^_^

My dear and sweet sister, in fact I should thank you becuz reading your comments and knowing your thoughts proves that I reached the highest goal I could've ever ask for, which is :" let people see themselves through my writing and in one way or an other, help them through" I'm so deeply happy you could recognize yourself throughout my poem. To be truly honest, you always cross my mind when i write something, i can say that you're some kind of "source of inspiration" for me. Finally, i wrote this poem to let people realize how lucky they are, to let them stop taking this person for granted. Also to let this person (like you) know that it's okay to let it out sometimes, to speak up and let yoyr voice be heard. So I deeply hope and pray that I'm always able to help you out my dear sister ^_^ remember that you're wirthy and priceless, as long as you believe and stay strong in yoyr faith, no one can take away your didgnity or humanity ;) Thank you so very much for the permantent support. I can't imagine Teenink without you sweetie :D and thanks a lot also for the inspiration ^_^ I pray God above so that one fine day we'll be able ti finally meet ;) ♡

I don't know what to say. :/ All I can say, is that I used to do the same exact thing. I always look after the ones I love or know, as best as i can and as much as possible. I probably take care of others better than I'm taking care of myself. Which I'm trying to work on. I know now, I'm important too, even when I don't feel like it. And then, there was a point in my life when I just thought and said to myself, "I'm human too." I realized that I need take care of myself too, and I need care too. I don't know what else to say, except when I read this, my eyes started tearing up and going wide. It perfectly describes me. I love it. Your poem is amazing and beautiful and wonderful. You really do have such a talent, my sister. Thank you, thank you so much for sharing this.
