beyond the surface

You look beyond the surface
To see whats inside
You notice I’m not okay
But I always act like I’m fine
You always see the tears in my eyes
But I smile to cover it up
I use a mask to hide my pain
That always dwells inside of me
No matter how hard I try
I always resort back to my pain inside
My mind is going insane
It feels like I’m living in shame
And people always kick me when I’m down
It seems I live on the ground
But when I reach out for help
Nobody’s around
I’m always alone
People constantly ask me if I’m okay
Well, NO! I’m not!
I repeat again and again
I’m always on the run
And no matter what I do
Its always wrong
So instead of asking if I’m fine
Look beyond the surface
Into my darkened life
And learn the really
Reason why
I’m not all right.
