I wake up in the morning, and it's a new day.
I take a deep breath and put on a brave face.

I know I'm not weak, for I am strong,
but you can only be invinsible for so long.

I may seem fearless but I am scared,
I just hide my emotions that I don't want to share.

At school I laugh, with my friends I smile
but then I just like to lay in my bed and whither away for awhile.

I cry at night, and pray for the best,
Trying to get sleep is the ultimate test.

People ask me "Is he doing okay?"
I hold back my tears and tell them he's taking it day by day.

I think about the accident, it replays in my head.
I blame the graphics on newspapers I once read.

I aways wonder, if he'll be okay.
And I hope he will be awake someday.

I wake up in the morning, it's another day.
I take a deep breath and put on a brave face.

The author's comments:
My brother was in an accident and suffered from a critical brian injury. He is still in a coma. His girlfriend did not make it, she died instantly. So this is hard for me and I feel like poetry is my only way I can talk about my feelings without breaking down.
