Smiling Through The Tears

Smiling Through The Tears

1 min

Why can't I smile,

When I should?


Fragile,

My bones

Breaking at this point.

Are you under the assumption,

That I might break you-

Or, tear you apart?


Why can't I smile-

Let myself lose

And sway with the beats?

Dance,

Dance and clap

And sway along-

Ignoring the cries from hell?

Why can't I ignore the cries from hell,

When I could smile

And cherish my life?


Why does my soul

Cry for the voices from hell?

Why can't I stop them

Rolling...


Rolling down my cheek

Tumbling down my lips,

And trailing past my neck?


Why can't I smile?

Why can't I brush them off?

Cherish my present,

And forget their past.

I've got a life to live,

Which is all I could possibly ask for...


I've got my life

Then why can't I smile?

My eyes should not burst with tears!


No!


I'm smiling

Smiling amid my tears...


Choking on saltwater

Even though " I'm fine "?


You say it's not fair,

I say

It's life.
