Her neck is strained from holding up her chin
And lips cracked from always trying to laugh

Her brain is fried from facing the future
And forgetting the worst of the past

Her eyes are bloodshot from looking so long
And her nose runny from not finding it

Her heart aches for her friends who are sick or sad
And it breaks because she cant make it all better

She is dizzy from taking the high road
And exhausted from running the whole way

Her shoulders hurt from carrying it all
But hunch for not being more grateful

She is tired from climbing the ladder
And bumping her head on the ceiling

So she keeps on working and talking and smiling and going
Because she is afraid of what might happen if she stops
