Lies by Me

I try not to be sad
I try to be glad
and smile 
and laugh
and love
But in reality 
I am not glad
just sad
Yet I try to smile
and laugh
and believe in the good
In reality
I cry 
I slowly die
yet I say
"I'm Fine"
I try to make
the people
I care about
I make others happyeven if 
I am not
I try to support
the sad
the broken
even though 
I'm sad
 and broken
I tell others
to have hope
even though
I have none
I try to show others
they are loved
even though
 I don't feel loved
But hey,
that's just me.
the girl who Doesn't know
who she is
but tries
