Just because

Just because I'm not crying 

Doesn't mean that I'm not sad

Just because I'm smiling 

Doesn't mean that I am glad 

Just because I am looking 

Doesn't mean that I can see

Just because I'm still here

Doesn't mean I want to be 

Just because I laughed 

Doesn't mean that I'm ok

Just because I'm busy

Doesn't make it go away 

Just because I'm strong 

Doesn't mean it's not an act

Mental illness is exhausting 

And that my friend, is fact.

as they say, Charlotte looks can be deceiving but I hope I'm right in saying that seeing you holding that beautiful bundle of joy that the look on your lovely face cannot possibly be deceiving. I very much enjoyed your poem. Thank you. Jemima.
