Inside Out

On the outside
She's normal
A good, quiet girl
Never causing trouble
Just blending in
On the outside
Noboby knows
On the inside
She's crying
Crying herself to sleep
As she spirals downward
Trying to survive
Her own personal storm
On the inside
On the outside
She pretends to be content
Puts on a mask
For her teachers and family
They never see anything more
Than the outside
But on the inside
She's dying
Slowly fading away
Like a shadow at sunset
Turning gray on the pavement
On the inside
She finds the others
The ones who understand
Who know why she cuts
To escape the dead feeling
Spreading like a plague
On the inside
