For years I have been the bubbly girl whose smile could light up a room,
But now I'm a skilled actress whose fake smile has fooled those closest to me.
They are wrong.
No one would ever guess that I had to turn to pain for comfort.
They pass the burn marks off as silly accidents made while straightening my hair.
They were wrong.
Who would guess that I held the straightener to my skin?
People tell me that I wouldn't understand what they are going through,
They are wrong.
