Some people see me as…
Nothing other than a heartless sole,
Nothing other then ruthless,
A maniac; insane,

No one ever sees me uncovered,
No one ever sees me,

Deep down is a small child,
Who always wants to cry,
Who is broken beyond repair,
Who sometimes just wants to be understood,
But never is,

Who has to be strong,
All the time,
And has to become something she isn't,
Just to not be stepped on,

And who above all,
Just wants someone who understands her,
