How Do You Do It?

Put on a smile
At the start of each day,
Hoping the tears
Will soon fade away.

Broken inside
From parts of the past,
Trying so hard
To forget them at last.

Act like you’re fine
Since nobody cares,
Wrenching apart
Your heart in despair.

Still you go on
And continue to grow,
Sharing your heart
For that’s all you know.
