The strongest among us

Sometimes‚ the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain‚ cry behind closed doors and fight battles nobody knows about.

There are moments of my life I wished it never existed; they were points when I reached my breaking point and I was on the verge of losing my life completely‚ but no one ever knew or noticed.

Everyone still saw me move on with my daily activities‚ laugh‚ and smile‚ but they were never able to decipher the pains through those smiles and the sorrow which my bright eyes which have become a dull bore.

Everyone was quick to tell me their problems and I always give the best advice ‚ but nobody was ready to be a listening ear‚ no one wanted to hear about the battles I fought nor the moments I cried myself to sleep‚ nor my fears; they said I was the strongest person they know.

No one was there for me when my heart was trashed out in the cold and treated like garbage; I was dying slowly and everyone thought I was healthy happy and just perfect.

Everyone was quick to tell me how my skin was glowing each time I posted my pictures‚ but only if they knew the filters that covered and hid my pale skin perfectly.

I laughed and talked with everyone as though my life was perfect; only if they knew that it was the only way I could stop myself from crying again.

My life is a tragedy and I hope that someday I will see light and happiness again.
