For Them

Forced to be brave,
To smile through my pain.
They need me too much,
I can't begin to complain.
They struggle with demons
That with mine can compare,
But to share with them MY weakness
Just isn't fair.
They need me too much,
I can't back down now.
I'll fight through the moments,
I'll show them how.
I'll teach them to hide,
If only for a while-
After all, you never really know
What pain hides behind every smile.
