The Girl You Think You Know

She is sad, but what else is new. She is hurt, well you would be too. She is dying, only from what she has done. She is alone, because she wants no one. She is lonely, because she pushes everyone away. She is a mess, because she secretly wants you to stay. She is judged, so she hides her face. She is ignored, and wishes she could be erased. She is suicidal, because she is tired of living. She is depressed, because she doesn't think life is worth winning. She is confused, because of everyone else. She is stressed, because she does it to herself. She is messed up, because of her past. She is misunderstood, and she hopes that won't last. She is tired, but still living. She is in pain, but still smiling. She is screaming, but stays silent. She is hurt, but won't show it. So the truth behind everything is finally set free, Because She... IS ME
