No one knows.

No one knows the pain behind my smile,

They don't see the tears I cry,

They don't realize how hard it is for me to wake up,

And go through another day.

No one knows I miss my mother,

Despite the pain she put me through...

Dad doesn't know how much I appreciate him,

Nor how much I need his support.

No one knows how afraid I am of becoming an adult.

But most of all,

No one knows me.

This is really moving to me, because my stepdad left almost a year ago and we were really close. I should have a poem (pending approval) that's about that. Will you read it, plz?
