    But On The Inside

    A smile with a pat on the back,
    and everyone thinks I'm okay.
    They're unaware of a sad fact,
    of how I'm trembling and afraid.
    An outward disguise,
    but on the inside....

    I openly share my inner shame,
    and everyone thinks I'm brave.
    They're unaware of the self-blame,
    and how my fears make me a slave.
    Just an outward lie,
    but on the inside....
