I have learned what to say  

And how I must appear  

I paint the smiles on my face  

Avoid conversations I do not want to hear 

Every day serves as a reminder  

Is that not enough to endure  

I do not like what has been changed  

Or who I am becoming  

The only thing that remains, is the hurt  

Nothing is as it should be to me  

I never expected this  

That life would be so caustic  

I cannot shut off what I feel  

It is the only thing proving this… is real
