Hiding my true self.

by Frances

You wish you could be yourself
the real and true you
not a made up covering
that everyone thinks is you outside
everyone thinks your strong
no tears do you ever shed
nothing can ever knock you down
well they sure are wrong

inside your not strong at all
tears are an everyday thing
depression is your best friend
but no one knows your friends

outside they see you as a prankster
making jokes and starting laughter

inside smilings impossible
and only tears are possible

you wish you could be yourself
the real and true you
not a made up covering
that everyone thinks is you

you wish you could tell someone,
show someone the truth
but no on would understand
the real and true you.

So what will I hide behind today on my journey?†nada te turbe††jim
