My laugh hides my screams. My smile hides my tears. It's been this way for so many years. Things aren't always what the seem. I always seem so happy. With not a single care in the world. But you should know sadly, Many things go untold. Nobody really knows who I am. They only know my cover. But I wish I could let it free. Let them know what's underneath. But instead I practice. My smiles in the mirror. Then the next thing I do is Make my fake laugh clearer. What is wrong? You need help? Is all they will ask. So I have decided To live behind my mask.

This was a beautiful poem; a friend of mine told me that most of the last year was all her pretending to be this happy funny person when really she felt depressed and empty inside. I understand this poem on such a personal level, thank you for sharing it.

This is beautiful and I can understand and feel the pain clearly, i am one of those people who hide behind a mask.

Thank you all for all the love and support. I'm so happy I'm able to post my poetry online and hopefully I can get my name out there
