Keep smiling , I think as I walk past yet another happy family, joyous and laughing
Keep smiling, I whisper as shadows dance around me , street lamps flickering
Keep smiling, I say as tears flood down my face like rivers,
Keep smiling, I sob as my thoughts weigh down upon me like boulders
Keep smiling, I mumble as I stumble through the street, the silence loud
Keep smiling, I frown as I stand on the ledge, the rocks below me sharp
What if I can’t keep smiling?
What if I can’t keep going?
But I can, I can keep smiling, because I smile as I face the only thing left for me,
I can keep smiling, I think, as I jump.
This is a poem I wrote for class a while ago!
