Poem: Terrified

I can see the stars, but they are not shinning.

Everything around me is going great, but I am not.

I am numb to the situation, expecting things to fail so I stop.

I do not let the happiness within come to life.

My joy can never be seen.

I work everyday and night just to make sure I feel alright.

There is not guarantee that this is real.

It could all be over with a blink.

Why am I so used to the hurt that joy also brings me pain?

Can I be healed?

That is why I do not give it my all.

I am terrified that the person looking in the mirror is doing okay.

I am terrified that the person is going to make it.

I am terrified to realize that person is me.

I guess I am just terrified.
