Just because i smile,

Even tho i hurt, i smilee . . . but even tho i smile, i still hurtt //
When you see me, i'm always smilingg . .
When you see me, the first thing that comes to mind is "What you smiling for/at"
but really . . you gotta know my story to actually kno why i smile . .
i smile because that's all i know how to do until i'm behind closed doors,
i smile because i don't want nobody to think that my life is a mess,
i smile because i feel like i have no choice,
i smile because i feel like no one will want to kno my problems
& no one will even CARE forreal about my problems . .
everytime sumbody has to say sumthang about me . . . . 
it gotta be about me walkingg around with a smile on my face ALL the time ,
but honestly, i know that feeling when it feels like nobodyy caree. . whn youu goinn thru yo problem, it seem like NOBODY there // they say tha only thang you can count on in this world is prayer, but recently i prayed so much, i thought that god couldn't hear - Pliess . .
I'm the girl whose always there for everyone, & honestly i want everyone to know that i'm here if they need a ear to listen, a smile to borrow, or a shoulder to cry on because just like i don't like that feeling, i'm pretty sure they don't , so if you need either one of those . . . . I'm ALWAYS here:)) .
