This is all I’ve ever known:
act act act
smile smile smile
lie lie lie
keep quiet keep quite keep quiet

All in the name of safety, strength, and
Not getting others worried about me
Or getting a hint that I am in fact
Not fine, not okay.
For in my head,
I am not worthy of their concerns
And desire to be there for me.
