Have you ever noticed the bags under her eyes

Have you ever noticed the bags under her eyes Or the anger issues that she has? Her hollow cheeks and cracked lips still forced into a smile. Struggling to show everyone that she’s a fighter that she will be alright. No one bothered to hold her close, to tell her that it’s okay not to be fine. So she breathed through her life as if it were a battlefield and wished that one day she would live, and not just survive.

  1. When she is berrated by others for not being up and positive, the wall goes up and she stops letting her soul weep openly. She hides the pain and the grief so that others aren’t brought down by her. She smiles, though dark circles underline the bags under her eyes. One day when she is tired of surviving, she will just screw it all and start living. Hopefully it won’t be too late by then. Life is too short.
