Never Knowing

Room full of friends,
All there till the end,
Yet still I feel so alone,
Staying unknown.
I hide the truth
Behind a mask,
So no one knows about the past,
Or sees the real me.
My life is like a joke;
only, it’s not funny.
I usually try to rhyme
But that’s just sometimes.
Now I’m just filling the lines,
But, why all the lies?
Because I have to hide the truth,
I don’t like to complain,
I just hide the pain,
Or is it the shame?
No one will ever know.
Not even me.
We’re all just more players
In the game called life.

At 17, young lady, you have done very well. You express the feelings of most of humanity, if they dared to express at all. Job well done!
