They Say

They say smile.
But I’ll frown.
They say keep your head up.
But I’ll look down.

They say it’s okay.
But it’s not.
They say keep peace.
But I’ve fought.

They say be happy.
But I’ll be sad.
They say control your anger.
But I’ll still get mad.

They say love.
But I still hate.
They say follow your dreams.
But I don’t believe in fate.

They say cherish life.
But it’s something I despise.
They say tell the truth.
But I’m covered in lies.

They say be strong.
But I still cry.
No matter what they say.
I still want to die.
