"It can always be worse, so put on a happy face and laugh!" (my own quote) &
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words may scar my soul."

I felt them start to build up
As soon as I saw him
I put on a happy face for my mom
Because she doesn’t know
That he broke my heart
She didn’t know that I balled my eyes out
She hasn’t realized that I’ve withdrawn
He says he wants us to be friends
I could barely hold them back
He asked if I understood
And I do
But that doesn’t stop the pain and anger
I blink back the tears
And realize that I was starting to put a shield up
My shield of anger
I feel the tears
As I pray
That God will help me this time
So I don’t isolate myself again
And don’t lose myself
They come and I can’t stop them
I hate them
They are a weakness I can’t stop

i started to write this when my very first bf broke up with me, it was a huge risk to my heart and he knew i was already very suspicious of males because of my dad. i hated that i cried because of their betrayals
