Whether to keep sanity intact,
weeding out the pessimism,
& or keeping the smile plastered on correctly.
Life can be a struggle. (duh)
You don`t want to make them uncomfortable,
so you suffer in silence.
For sake of keeping up a pretty picture..
Hiding the less than attractive that lie underneath.
When is it ever okay to step out?
At which point is it okay to show all of you?
Can that be safe?
"It`s not about me.."
