You Never Loved The Real Me

Something's not right
I just don't know what it is
I was so sad,
Doing stupid stuff
So I got help
It did help
Didn't it?
When I came back home
I expected everything to be perfect.
So why isn't it?
I tried so hard,
To change my whole being
I did everything so we could be happy
I went around with a smile on my face
Even though I was crying inside.
I told everyone I was fine
Even though I knew I wasn't
I pretended to be something I'm not...
Happy
I felt so worthless
I had to lie to make you love me
I wasn't allowed to be myself
Not if I wanted to be loved
Cuz you refused to love the real me
So day after day I go on
Every smile, another lie
Just another effort
To finally being loved.

I really like the last half, and how you described your emotions. But at the beginning, you could have been more descriptive, especially in the line "doing stupid stuff." It's way to vague. I understand that you may not have wanted to write it in a poem and post it online, but it makes the beginning a little bit off. If it makes it easier, you could write a poem as if you're writing about someone else, when really, you're talking about yourself (just a suggestion, you don't have to).
