I Try

Written by: Kara McLain

Forces to grin and bear
Even though I want to rip out my hair.
Just not into life, I guess;
But I try my best.

Fed up with having to put on a mask--
I thought all that had passed.
I want to scream back at all that you say,
But I act as if everything’s okay.

Biting my lip at all that I see--
This was never me.
I just want to lie and cry.
But I try.
