The sorrow inside-
As much as you try
Does not subside.

You are a wax figure.
Fake, phony, counterfeit.

The smile-
is a cover-up.
The laugh-
is so you don't reveal
what is truly you.

The clothes-
and Make-up
it's all for show.

You are shinning.
Even if the devil is inside you.
Crimson rays-
catch the eye.

Though the white lace-
drenches the body.
Heaven and Hell.
Good and Evil.

The author's comments:
Many teens go to school everyday hiding something. What people might not get is that the kid who always comes to school with a smile, may be the one who is hurting the most. These kids hide behind their true self, but in the end they will find themselves.
