Drenched in life's sorrow, my own inner pain.
Filled with sadness, contempt and hidden fear.
Longing to be set free from an evil reign.
Longing for someone to tell me they care.
My hurt buried in self condemnation.
My soul poisoned with bitterness and hate.
The tears of affliction be my portion.
A life filled with loneliness my sad fate.
But in the eyes of the world I'm happy.
Radiant and dancing in pure delight.
Filled with love, joy and laughter, you see me.
Angelic and performing what is right.
My façade perfected all on my own.
My true emotions kept from being shown.
