Put on a smile
And act for the while
Cover it up
Drink from the happiness cup

The cups full of lies
It helps put on a disguise
The liquid goes down your throat
And keeps you staying afloat

Not beer or a drug
It’s like a nice warm hug
But the hug is fake
And I go through it for peoples sake

I drink a lot from the cup
And smile as backup
But on the inside
I feel my sadness hide

When the happy effect is gone
Pain is a game and I’m a pawn
I cry till I lose my breath
And I feel the pain of death

But death won’t come
And I’ve hit rock bottom
No matter if the sad builds up
Each day I’ll drink from the Happiness cup

Thank you for writing this! It helps other people realize that we are not the only ones. I believe we all drink from the happiness cup, but writing about it actually makes a difference.
