I'm lost in a sea of faces, broken lives, fragmented memories.
My body stands still but my mind crashes forward.
The pain is seeping through my pores and out into the world for all to see.
I can't hide it anymore.
I want to cry but the tears won't come.
I need someone to hear my words, the words that have been left unspoken.
But no one is there.
I pray for the strength to get through this pain, this illness, this misery, this constant wave of hurt.
I pray for the comfort to know that I can get through this.
I pray that I will wake up in the morning and be able to do what I need to do.
I look out the window and wonder how such a beautiful world could be filled with such hateful people.
I wonder if I will ever be able to leave these memories behind.
I just have to keep telling myself, "I can do this. I can do this. I can do this..."
