Smileyface

2003 – As she walks through the corridors crazy thoughts are creeping into her head. All she wants to do is scream and kick the world like it is a punching bag. She doesn’t want to be here. She doesn’t want to be anywhere. When someone asks if she’s ok, she just nods and smiles.

2013 – Today is not fine, everything is not alright. So when someone asks ‘how are you doing’ she just says what she feels, no matter if this was just a courtesy question. “I feel like shit today. What happened was not alright and there is nothing I can do.” Tears flow down her cheeks when she relives the pain.

Never fear to suffer, never hide behind a smile – Shandon
