It hurts deep down inside,
to know that I have cried.
I've failed to stay strong,
couldn't handle everything for long.
I tried to smile everyday without fail,
Inside something is telling me not to bail.
I don't want to go through with this,
but I cannot go on with just a dismiss.
It's hard to know I tried and did not succeed,
that I needed help and I was in need.
I waited for so long,
just never felt that I belonged.
I just decided to give up,
I knew I couldn't do it I fessed up.
I will be strong,
I will walk the walk and sing my song.
This is my life beginning to unfold,
I misplaced my pathetic mask and mold.
But I am not giving in,
I know within myself that one day I will win.
