Life has destroyed me, and broken my heart.
Pain has weakened me, torn my world apart.
Fear has engulfed me, and stolen my home.
Life has betrayed me, and forced me to roam.
I hide this pain inside with an unreal smile.
I think to myself, "I'm ok for a while."
If I say the right words, they'll think I'm alive,
When all the time I fight to survive.
So I'll tell them of God and all that He's done.
I'll show them my "dreams" and they share in my "fun."
But it's not really real, and the pain's setting in.
The world will see me 'cause my lie's wearing thin.
I want the hurt to end, and I don't care how.
I want the pain to stop, to fade away now.
If I need to die, it doesn't matter to me.
So take my life, I know where I'll be.

WOW! Really strong and reflective of whats going on inside. A good write also. If knowing is half the battle the other half is living it. With Jesus Christ we can, so can you. He always makes a way where there seems to be no way! We all share because we care.
