A fierceness unmatched, the shades drawn tight
I turn my back swiftly, shutting out the light.
Happiness and laughter a thing of the past,
Visions of sorrow and self-doubt are cast.
Embraced by darkness, I just want to leave...
The life that has hurt me more than you can conceive.
But such a journey requires strength and courage...
Qualities which I no longer possess, but rather discourage.
Many faces are presented throughout the day...
Smiles often forced, while my eyes tell the truth I want to say.
Crying inside, unable to express why...
But silence falls to silence, no one willing to try.
Too scared to give up, too scared to go on,
I stand in the middle and try to be strong.
So crouched in the corner, down on my knees...
I hope one day for this pain to be relieved.

I love your rendition of a life so bitter that it's not even worth ending it. Very inspiring.

Patience is a virtue, but virtue has never been one of my redeeming qualities.
