Why is it that we allow ourselves to suffer?

Day by Day we walk around,

fake smiles plasered to our faces,

bracelets to hide the cuts,

makeup to hide the bruises.

Why do we sacrifice our health, our humanity, just to please others?

Its about time to roll up our sleeves,

shed our tears,

and melt away the facade of lies,

that most people have grown to believe is us.
