Smiling yet Dying

Smiling outside but dying inside Laughing for everyone to hear, crying…not showing a single tear Helping others day after day, never asking for help, no freakin’ way These are the masks we wear every day, reminding ourselves to be okay We follow the crowds, we go with the flow They don’t want you to think, they don’t want you to grow We all do this to feel needed, important or any form of self – worth Stop overthinking, be yourself…make YOUR difference while still on this earth Take the lead, cause following will only end in pretending to be someone you’re not Never happy, never satisfied, always confused and disappointed allot No one will really know you and what you have to offer in life So just be YOU, see through YOUR eyes, go forward and strive!

This meaningful poem made me stop and think, Renee. We have all been gifted with individual talents, and there is no need to imitate others, although it's reasonable to admire what's good in others. Regards // paul

How truely you stated that we shouldn't pretend to be someone we aren t and try to live the ltype of life we want, once you re living life as you want it, you ll automatically find happiness in your life as life is a series of good and bad events, in good times we mustn t forget our Lord and in bad times we just need to be patient and have faith in GOD
