To hide the pain I feel inside
To pretend to everyone that I’m alright
When all I need is a good man to love and treat me right
To ease some of the burden sitting on my heart
For it keeps me from falling apart
To hold on to my sanity
When everything goes wrong for me
To feel better about myself
When I’m being criticized by family members and everyone else
To stay positive all the time
Because it’s the only way I can have peace of mind.
