Smile

The bile rises
The tears fall
You stay upright
Through it all

You pierce your skin
Blood tears through
But in your world
It's nothing new

Thrown to the wall
Bruises come
You broke a bone
Another one

You smile away
All through school
The face you pull
It fools them all

Bile rises
Broken bones
Tears fall
Nobody's home
A slit to your wrist
A cut on your arm
Nobody knows
About all the harm
Sit alone
Tears fall
Nobody knows
You smile through it all. 

The End
