What's under my skin is so torn.
No one will ever know, unless I tell them.
I smile and laugh all the time, so people figure I am all good...
even though I am not.
For so long I've tried to keep my torn skin hidden,
but now it's starting to show my life struggles.
I always tried to hide them because it help me forget them...
or at least I thought.
I just wish my life struggles would end,
but as of now it seems their just beginning.
I wrote this April 17, 2010. This piece is short, but powerful in context. The struggles that you face in life cannot be run from, even if you try to. The more you allow yourself to struggle, the more your skin will tear. Let me tell you from experience, it's not worth it.
