Life can be overwhelming

Sometimes, I still feel I can’t breathe

But it’s gone from hospital trips

To needing to be alone, or needing to leave

Just because I smile

Doesn’t mean I feel alright

I have my happy moments

Yet I’m always trying to fight

No, you don’t see it

The battle is going on inside

Just when I’m starting to win

Right back down, I slide

Most times I look fine

I might even have something to say

All I ask from people – don’t judge

I might not be okay
