I put a smile on my face
As if life is a fairy tale,
While inside my heart is pale
I act strong and don’t
Shed a tear, as if I’m
Without fear but the tears
Have formed a river inside,
I laugh as if life is a smile
And I try to forget about
Walking miles

My destination is still remote
I wish I could denote the
Potential in me. I am
Demoralized, discouraged,
And disheartened. I’m afraid
To proceed, prolong, and pursue.

I’m near the summit of my
Mountain, but I’m afraid to
Topple I just cannot fall…
Engrossed in thoughts
On how to carry on. A voice
In me says β€œYou can do this”
The voice of God my creator.
I believe, I will make it.
