Just Because I Smile - Poem by irfa hani

Just because I smile
doesn't mean everythings alright,
How do you know
that I'm not going to cry myself to sleep tonight?

Yeah I'm strong
and I try hard not to fall,
I can say its not about me
but only because it helps me stand tall.

How would you know
what I feel inside?
There no ways you can
because everything in there has already died.

Would you see if I hurt?
Do you even care?
I'm so sick and tired of
struggling just for air.

I've fooled everyone,
into thinking I'm so strong
and now no one worries that
there might be something wrong.

And you don't understand me,
as I sit on the side lines.
Go on dump on me
I know you'll never see my disaster signs.

In the end
when another battles fought
I go and hold myself
and cry because about me no one ever thought

Can you see whats going on?
I'm so fed up of being alone
I'm not going to ask for help
but this feeling of weakness is wearing my down to the bone.
