Does Any one hear me?

Written by: johneta ohler

Here I sit, I’m shaking
Inside, my heart is breaking
Inside, my screams are loud and violent
Outside, I am still and silent

The tears, the well inside my eyes
Yet I work so hard to maintain my disguise
I wish someone could know,
How far I feel from home

Inside, I feel a constant churning
Inside, I constantly am yearning
Outside, I smile and am free
Outside, no one can see the real me

Does anyone hear me?
Can anyone see?
How hopeless I feel
Lost behind the wheel
of this small and pathetic life of mine.
