Don't pull a frowny face
They'll just bury you in questions
"Are you okay?"
I'm exhausted from having to force a smile
It's not socially acceptable to be sad in public
So **** it
I guess I'll just die with a broken face.
i guess i bit off more
than i could ingest
Every time you frown
I feel the need to make you smile.
All you seem to do is lift others up,
even when it pushes you down.
They love you.
But I want to care for you.
To all those people out there you put others before themselves. I want to make you smile! And if you don't believe me, I'll show you
‘I need help’
I said as I grasped for words to describe the un describable
My hands slipped off the mountain as I feel into the colorless void
Don't pull a sad face
Pretend to them that you're fine
Then it may come true
You're breathing and
and you can see
There are people that
so don't complain
get up and
Are you sad or unhappy
Depressed; Feeling lonely
Each day dark and dreary or blue?
Do not worry my friend
I know just how you feel
I have all the right answers for you
So to counter the downward
You start thinking upward
Bad thoughts will stick to you like glue
It takes more than just effort
You must remain strong
Fortitude; So this trip you'll see through
Now I want you to think
of a time you were happy
When things in the world all seemed new
Full of love and carefree
Innocent; Truly pure
Crisp and clean; Much alike morning dew
When inside of your mind
you project types of thoughts
that are positive; A "dream come true"
It rewires your brain
Generates new connections
Gets rid of the old residue
But you must stay the course
Don't give up in distress
And in time it will start getting through
It is hard I confess
But would never attempt
or could make a false promise to you
So if happiness is
what you want from your life
Yet it always finds ways to elude
The change comes from inside
Must have faith; Must believe
Make a batch of fresh "positive brew"
As you drink this elixir
In time you will see
Billiard ***** have all left but the cue
A blank slate to create
What you want of the world
Every color no longer just blue
Disagree or debate
If you finish the race
Like a big gust of wind that just blew
All the darkness now gone
Feel like 'here I belong'
Peace of mind; Life that's filled with love too

I miss my old me, that very young boy at the school yard
Now I am a teacher in that old town
Always filled with hatred and frown
Once taught teaching was a crown
but here I am with nothing but cloud full of bills of next month
Let your tears flow if they supposed to
Let your smile glow if they supposed to
Put your frown on before they think you soft
Let them know what they want to
But don't let them know your real complexion
The cry of a chimpanzee
"Don't let them know your real complexion"
