Here is to another year of life,
Should I be buoyant and forget these years of strife?
See my demons are growing more mature,
As I silently suffer no closer to a cure.
24 years of carrying this unbearable pain inside,
Yet today I'll show the world I'm happy and hide these tears I’ve cried.
En fin, feliz cumpleaños para mí
I hope these messages from back home bring a source of glee.
