We have forgotten how to distinguise pain from life

centuries pass

and we live from moment to moment

never stopping to breath in the air

that fills our lungs

in and out

our hearts beating

and yet not truly existing

lub dub

lub dub

continuing for infinity

the mark of the human race

We bleed and yet continue 

with our endless cycles of pain

waking up in the morning

with tear filled eyes

we apply our makeup

paint on false smiles

never falter

when facing the rest of the world

strength is necessary

when the people you love depend on you

and when you want to die

and face knifes, suicide notes, and tears

every sleepless night

when your only reason for existence

is for their happiness

then what is a faked smile

but another part of life.

The End
