The Real Me

To strangers
I seem
Strange

To friends
I am
Crazy

To me
I am
Depressed

My life
Is a roller coaster
Of ups and downs

It never
Stops to let
Me off

I am
Always acting.
I put
On a
Show for
Everyone

I hope
Someday
Someone
Will want
To see what I am

No one
Knows how I feel
No one
Cares how I feel.

I am
Always happy
I smile and laugh
On the
Outside

I am
Always crying
I sigh and hide
On the
Inside

No one
Takes the
Time to
Know the real
Me.

Not even
My closest
Friends

I hide
The truth
From them
By
Being happy
And smiling big

I am
Scared to
Tell them
The truth about
Me

I don't
Want them
To leave
Me
Alone

I try
To show
Them me
But
They don't
Understand
They don't
Care

Someday
I will
Get new
Friends
Who know
The
Real
Me
