The Story Of My Life
This Is Me
All around me are people,
Talking, laughing, having fun.
But they ignore me because
They think I don't want to talk.
The truth is,
I am too scared to join them.
I am afraid that they will laugh at me.
They don't know
That I have been scared.
I watch them laugh
And in my heart,
Tears fall silently.
My face does not show my sadness,
But it's there, buried under false smiles and fake words.
I am sad because
I am always left out; never included.
In my past life I was mercilessly teased,
Ridiculed because I told the guy I liked how I felt.
Now I am unable to talk to boys
Without feeling nervous, lonely and betrayed.
But I don't want your sympathy and sadness,
What I want is a friend.
Do not pity me unless you understand.
But how could you?
I've kept it all inside me;
My fear, my doubts, my lonliness and tears.
You would not know.
You have everything.
I want someone to find my tears
And steal them away,
Replace them with happiness.
If you love me
And you don't want to lose me,
Please do this one thing;
Make me happy.
