I

am an athlete,
a straight a student,
the perfect child,
a role model,
and I,

Hate

letting others down.
My life is happy
on the inside
but I do not even
know the inside of

myself

yet….

So why is it that everyone tells me “I am here for you,” but when the going gets tough, the topics to deep, they are gone? How come I have to be strong for everyone…who do I get to lean on? When do I get a chance to cry?
