Live life in the now and not in the past or the future.

Some people show real smiles
But the thing is how do we know if that smile is real
It takes a lot to truly smile but it takes one small muscle to make a fake one
I don't understand why I've been feeling the way I have been lately
but one thing I know
that i don't know
I don't know what's wrong with me
Over the past couple days I've been getting worse and worse
More filled with depression and sadness
I need help
I'm afraid I'm afraid to lose people
I don't know how to share emotions
It seems so easy but yet it's so hard it's so hard for me to share mine and have a real smile
As I look down on this writing I'm doing I can't help but to cry
As I look down on my hands I see tears on them from my eyes
I see a kid I've never seen before
Just standing there
Standing in darkness
Everything around him is dark he can't see anything in front of his eyes
And every night I see him he reminds me so much of me
Just a young kid with darkness and sadness all around him
Not knowing what to do or what to say to anyone so he keeps quite through every day
