Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken. From Emma by Jane Austen

I failed another test in school today,
and I can't help but to feel this way.
I smile and laugh because people can see,
they are never to know the real me.
Alone at last I break down in tears,
and drop the pretnse that I have no fears.

I know I'm not as smart as my sisters are,
and that I'll never be agle to go as far.
It's more then just this one test,
no matter what I do I'm never close to the best.
So alone in a bathroom stall I cry,
and wish that I could die.

This pain I feel will never completly heal,
I know it's wrong but it's how I feel.
I dream of somone taking me out of misery,
because good enough is something I'll never be.
I hear the bell and wipe the tears out of my eyes,
I hear the bell and wipe the tears out of my eyes.
When my friends ask where I was at lunch I lie.
