Hiding Behind This Mask

I am mostly happy,
But sometimes I hide behind that.
I act like I'm happy,
But inside I'm crying.
Sometimes I let it slip-out,
That first tear leads to what seem Like a never ending flow.
I know it's wrong to wear a mask,
But if I didn't and you knew the real me,
Would you still be by my side?

The question at the end of this makes this poem. It makes you wonder who really cares what's on the inside.
