Pain

We feel it in our bones,
we feel it in our muscles.
We act our way through it
so they won't see the struggle.

We put on a fake smile
and say that we're "O.K."
We lie and say that were fine
that we're just tired all day.

The worst pain ever
is the pain inside your heart.
There is no cure for it
and that's the worst part.

We learn to move on
to deal with the pain,
to deal with the struggle,
but it will never be the same.
