Deep down


On the outside I'm just a perfect happy girl faking a smile.
But deep down I want to scream in a room full of people but I don't think they would hear.
On the outside I don't seem stressed out or sad.
In the inside I feel that I wouldn't be able to fight the demons in my life.
On the outside I'm carefree about everything and not afraid of anything.
In the inside I worry if I were to leave this cruel, complicated world up to the gates of heaven, would anyone care?

And when I say care I mean notice
Notice me at all if I disappear
Into a world of nothing, but fear
I guess I'll never know
Unless someone shows me how to know.

    Sometimes I feel oh so alone,
    Like someone is controlling my actions, like I'm a drone,
    Sometimes I just lay here and cry,
    Wanting to give up and nor even try
    Then I remember that I'm a child of God, and nothing can break me,

    • Lil

      I feel that sometimes. But so you know your not alone.

        Beautifully done!
        Sometimes I cover the mirror, and wonder if it's me, or him that's hiding.
