By
   Being left alone from the crowd,

Don't want to say out loud,

How unhappy I feel inside,

The feeling that I hide,

Doesn't ever come out,

But that's what I'm all about,

The personality I keep,

Would make me want to weep,

The real person is here,

But not wanted there,

So these feelings make me sane,

But others will think that I am lame,

We never let our true selves out,

But they will make fun of my doubt,

About the real person I am,

Shut up like a clam,

Everyone wants me to be them,

But never wants me to be their friend.
