Darling I see you there with your big smile

It’s like you don’t have a care in the world

You’re good at school and have a great sense of style

You love your anime and your sweets

And you’re always wearing bright colors

Darling I can see right through it all

You’re not telling me your best kept secret

You’re broken just like me

I have to wonder how it can be

That a pretty girl with a big smile 

Could be so broken inside

Darling I want to help you

Don’t you know I’ve been there too?

I wish I could save you from this hell we call life

But I could only give you my advice

You know you don’t have to please them

You’re perfect the way you are

Put away the pills and roll up your sleeves

I’ll help you through this darling

I know you’ll turn out okay

You’ll make it through this I promise you

I write you this because I love you

This poem is about: 
My family
