Cheerful!!

Cheerful!

They ask me why I smile
I smile because I must
Hiding all the pain
Broken promises and trust

Happy I am not
But cheerful I will be
Shielding all the evil
That makes its way to me

Through all of my troubles
And the lies that I am told
Stressful days and nights
The children that I scold

Crying deep inside
But they will never know
Staying strong and cheerful
I take it as I go

Life is nothing peachy
The problems piling up
Some days are more than stormy
I feel as if I’m stuck

Economy in shambles
Homeless all around
Guns firing at war
And we never hear the sound

Friendships being broken
Hearts being crushed
Inside I’m screaming “Help me!
This is all too much!”

Cheerful through the good times
Cheerful through the bad
Tolerating all things
Because I’m strong I can

A bright smile
And a positive attitude
I smile because I must
There’s nothing else to do

Crying won’t end hunger
Screaming won’t make me rich
Pouting won’t end bloodshed
And a broken heart isn’t something that crankiness can fix

I am Cheerful! I am hopeful.
That better days will come
I smile because I have to smile
I’m cheerful because I’m strong

Cheerful!!
