It's All For Me - Poem by Jana Courville

Could this be all there is for me,
This life I live that no one can even see,
The hurt and pain all locked inside,
Trying to keep it all in,
Using my fake smiles as my guide,
Everyone thinking I must be insane,
I have everything that I could want,
And yet I still complain,
They wouldn't understand if I let them in,
So why not continue to TRY,
And keep 'a good composure',
And just go on pretending everythings alright,
until I someday can NO LONGER FIGHT?
