Tough

I don't hurt,
I never cry.
I can't feel,
Any pain inside.
My skin is too tough,
To let it get to me.
"She doesn't care what you do,
Because she's not like me and you."
I don't show that pain inside.
I put on a smile,
And mumble I don't care.
Therefore I don't...
They believe.

Dang, I've been going through all of your poems and I am mighty impressed. You've got a real gift. I chose to comment on this poem especially because it's something I've related to the most...having thick skin and a game face...ugh, I don't know how to describe it. But kudos to you for being such a great writer.
