We All.....

We all keep a secret,
Behind our polished masks,
One that no one talks about,
'Cause no one ever asks.
Even though we all look fine,
We all have something hidden,
Buried in our souls so deep,
Entry is forbidden.
We all act like we're okay,
Even when we're not,
No one ever questions looks,
Or give a second thought.
We all judge on what we hear,
And not what we can see,
Someone can be plainly hurting,
But hide behind fake glee.

This is very deep.  It sort of reminds me of another poem I read. TeenInk.com/poetry/free_verse/article/541233/Secrets/

Sorry that i just saw your comment. On this poem i tried to make it so everyone can relate to it. And i agree. The poems are very alike in some aspects.
