Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


I feel naked, cold, and bare
I feel all the eyes as they stop and stare
I am surrounded by people, yet I feel so alone
Hatred and anger just chilling to my bone

I am not the person people see from the outside
There is a whole new me that only I can find
I drift through places, not knowing where I walk
Trying to be silent, not wanting to talk

I hide myself away from the watchful eye
Not knowing how and not knowing why
My heart aches for the things so hard
Silence, peace, serenity, just another unturned card

I was going to a friend's house when I wrote this. I am not really sure what made me think of this at all. The words just started coming to me really quickly.
