I hide the pain behind the smile on my face.
The unbearable pain
I keep deep inside.
The horrible, strong feelings
Eating through my flesh
The unforgettable pain
The pain is so strong,
It's like taking a knife
Stabbing and twisting it
Into my flesh.
Fighting the pain
The battle to keep a smile on my face.
Pain eating me away.
I found this poem.....reading it, it spoke to me.
I feel like this every day. Some days are much harder than others.
Especially these last few weeks, as I've struggled to care for myself
'They' say....Love your pain....
I've tried this..I think I've tried everything.
Living with it is hard but I try......try.....to keep a smile on my face.
In public anyway....
To those of you who suffer any sort of pain, you
have my deepest sympathy.
