Appearing happy because I don’t have a rain cloud floating above my head,
However you don’t see the dark clouds I carry inside instead.
Putting on my happy face to show off to all those near.
Masking my weeping with humor so laughter from others is all I hear.
Most people have scars from their wounds, mine have yet to heal
Sometimes I feel this pain I carry is the only thing that is real.
Will anyone ever see the real me?
It isn't even remotely close to whom I appear to be.
Living a life with my mind misunderstood
Feeling even if someone wanted to look inside they never could.
I am cursed with constant noise inside my mind
the only time I get to taste freedom is when I let my words take me for a ride.
Secretly I am scared of this pain, that is one thing I know for a fact
Though I am scared, holding onto this pain is what is keeping my thoughts intact.
