I Want To Be Happy

I want to be happy
Even though I am sad

I tend to procrastinate
Until things look really bad

I still manage to paint on a smile
Even when I’m hurting inside

I want to look like I’m happy
But there are secrets I hide

I don’t want  you to see me like this
So I isolate for days

I hide within these walls
Among the messes I’ve made

I know there is light found in God
That shines brighter than this pain

I raise a desperate cry for help
One touch from Him and I am sane

He cleans up my spirit
I clean up the messes I’ve made

I then find true happiness
And joy throughout my days
