Do You Know What It's Like? - Poem by Christine Sears
Do you know what it's like
To wake up and pray to fall asleep again?
Just so I don't have to face the day,
I close my eyes and say 'Amen.'
I'm tired of dealing with your remarks;
You don't realize how much they hurt.
I don't let it show because I'm embarrassed,
But these horrible feelings are hard to divert.
I know you'll never understand how I feel.
I might try to explain but you'll just never know
All the things I bottle up inside
The many emotions I choose not to show.
Don't ever assume you know someone
Because something will always be hiding
Under the surface, out of your reach,
Because feelings are always abiding.
