Smiling Through the Pain

Sheila is a recovering addict who comes from a family full of addicts. She also suffers from mental illness & she has endured a lot.

Depression is very dangerous.. Never ignore someone's pain


She smiles though she feels like crying

She laughs though she feels like screaming

She tells them she's fine

She suffers in silence


Her pain doesn't matter

So she smiles through the pain

She laughs through the tears

She suffers in silence


It hurts so bad she can hardly breathe

She can't take it much longer

But she says she's just fine

While she suffers in silence


She's had enough of the agony

She needs to be free

Free from the hell

Of suffering in silence


She writes them a note

She closes the blinds

She takes her last breath

No more suffering in silence
