I’m fine, is what I say even when I’m not

I’m fine, even when I feel like screaming my lungs out

I’m fine even when you see I’m not

I’m fine, even when I’m dragging myself

I’m fine,

I’m fine,

Even when I know I’m not

Crooked Smile

I wipe away my tears

And show them my smile that’s crooked

I hide away my fears

They will never know.
I sway and sing

Like the great pretender that I am

They don’t know the heartache it brings

When they laugh and talk behind me.
But I walk away stronger

And don’t mind the negatives

I come out to be bolder

They could never know.

Scars

You see me flawless, not a scratch

Not a mark

But deep inside is no match

As the color can sometimes be too dark

Kept within, no one will see

Screaming in silence

No one knows but me

Living day by day with resilience 
You see me go on, live on

As if nothing and no sadness can touch me

But like you I have my battles

And these scars are proof you too can make it

She Was Man Enough

She held her tongue 

She held her ground

She could have made a lot of noise 

But she chose not to make a sound.
She could have given up

She could have called it quits 

She held on despite being broken

And she picked up the all the tiny bits.
She never surrendered even when she could have

She’s strong,

Stronger than you think

Slowly

Slowly, I let you go
Slowly, I accept
Slowly, I begin to know
Slowly, I tell myself that just like before I will be alright
Slowly, I come to terms…
…that I am to walk this earth on my own

I am tired
I am beat
I am literally dragging my feet

Despite the chaos
I try to remain calm and have fun
And tell the world, no I’m not yet done

The struggle is real
As real as can be
But I tell my troubles, no you can’t beat me

I hold my head high
Keep it above water
And I keep in mind that I shouldn’t falter

My energy is being drained
But I will not quit
So this mantra is on repeat,
“I can and I will”
And I believe I will……I will get back on my feet

If I gave up

If I fell and never got up

If I kept complaining and didn’t act

I wouldn’t be here

 

If I did not persist

If I let negativity get the best of me

If I didn’t act

Or tried to make a change

I wouldn’t be here

 

I am not the strongest

And many a times I faltered

Many times I want to give up

But I keep reminding myself

That the rainbow is on the horizon

And the only one to stop me is myself
