The formalities which we call normality,
Would bring others to tears,
As if we don't...
But we do.
We allow our minds to scream in our eyes,
If only because we have no other option.
Gracefully we strip away our minds until all that's left,
Is who we think we are,
All to this, though we are never satisfied.
With a straight face,
We release our streams of tears,
And allow no one to see the hells we face.
Our needlessly numbing mind drags on,
Our nemesis in ourselves,
But we can't tell a soul.
"It's not that hard."
"Just think positive thoughts."
and the best,
"I could do it, why can't you?"
They think us lazy,
When all our energy is spent fighting ourselves.
We find our kin,
Where we extend our silent sympathies,
With the written words,
