The World Doesn't Know Why

I don't smile often.

The world doesn't know why. I don't smile at you because I don't like you. I don't smile because I am terrified of not  receiving one back.

I don't speak often.

The world doesn't know why. I don't speak to you because i think I am better than you. I don't speak because i think you're better than me. 

I don't live often.

The world doesn't know why. I don't live because i don't want to be a part of the world. I don't live because i feel like the world doesn't need me.

I hate myself always.

The world doesn't know why. I hate myself because I'm a coward. I hate myself because i hold myself back from being happy. I hate myself because i am my worst enemy. I hate myself because i give up so easily, because i think I'm not worth anything, because i never learned to love myself.

Now the world knows.
