Fake Smiles And Lies. - Poem by Emily Reid

I wake up each morning
With another tear stained face
And no matter how hard I try
These tears I can't erase

I go to school and smile
Just wishing this would end
My smile is slowly fading
Its getting harder to pretend

I then go off to practice
Where again I'm forced to lie
I just can let them see
The pain behind my eyes

Then finally I get home
And rush up to my room
And once again I start to cry
And my life is now resumed

And when the nighttime comes
I'm not sure what i'll do
I try my best to keep myself
From feeling down and blue

But in the end I cry
Knowing that its wrong
I guess my plan has failed
Showing I'm not strong

I then reach for the knife
To dull the pain inside
And this I do deserve
For all the times I've lied
I cry myself to sleep
Like I do each night
And as I sleep I wonder
Will I ever win this fight…
