The Mask

Smile! She said,

A frown upon my face.

I smile, and she smiles back

But it means nothing.

The pain in my heart

Forces me to act.

It tells me that,

They don't need to know.

A smile is a mask;

A cover for true emotions.

It hides what we're feeling

So that no one can see.

No one really cares,

What your feeling inside.

Its just another weight,

Upon uncaring shoulders.
