How to Hear Me

I have hoped many times before
That someone may see
That I'm not okay
I wear a smile every day
And breathe a thousand tears
I speak of joy and good and light
And dream of better years
Will someone please hear me?
Deep in my eyes
Past farther than even I can see
Are the black skies and deathly lies
I watch the others
With full-on envy
As they go about their time
And laugh and dream sweetly
Will someone please hear me?
My silent begging and pleading and self-hatred
And happiness long-ago turned into fear
Gone away is my beauty
And my hopes full of love and life
I miss being a part of them
The high and brightly
But I now am
Pale and half and unsightly
Will someone please hear me?
I'm telling you now
I'm telling myself
I'm telling them how
To hear me

Wow, i think this is pure genius. It really explains what a traumatic experience adolescence is to some. Bravo!
