Here I stand before you

But you will never see me clearly

The light is not bright enough

Only I can see my disintegration

Falling apart into pieces everywhere

With every step, breath, every move

But you will never see me fall

No. I stand strong in your vision

This smile I wear for you, so real

Just like May's rain so hard to avoid

These tears flow escaping my eyes

Yet you will never see them fall

Strong women never break on the outside

They just keep smiling for all to see

For a smile masks the pain held inside

I'm getting better at it can't you tell?

Can you take the pictures now?

For now my cheeks are starting to hurt.
