Lies we tell the world This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Why can't you hear my scream
Pleas for you to return
My cry for help

Am I truly invisible to you, all you see is my mask
Plastered smile
My “I'm fine, how are you?”

I am struggling
Drowning in life
Breathing in toxic lies

Can you not see my tears?
Feel the sobs coming from my soul.

I am hurting
Breaking into pieces
I'll never be the same
