Outside your smile hides it all.
Hides your pain, your tears, and all the emotion that build up in life.
So painful it cuts you up like a knife, Stabbing your happiness and watching it die.
It never ends.
You don’t know how to make it stop.
The pain just keeps on building up inside
You can’t take it any longer.
So many feelings running through your body and you don’t know what half of them mean.
So many people want you to be so many things and you just want to be yourself.
But sometimes you don’t even know who that is.
To many people pressuring you.
Trying to mold you into their own person.
You want to please everyone but at a horrible price of your happiness.
You try to over come it and you try to fight.
But how can you fight something that is so much stronger then you.
The worries and troubles weigh on your mind unnoticed by everyone.
Even the people you thought knew you the most don’t notice.
Because your cover is never blown.
Your phony laughs and smiles take over their minds they don’t bother looking at the inside.
They don’t see the hurt and they don’t feel the pain.
