I'm sad, but a smile I borrow—

Need to hide this feeling of sorrow.

Want to run but I'm trapped.

Can't move, my body's wrapped.

Then my friends sit beside me

And my emotions flee.

I'm so glad that I broke in tears

Hoping to satisfy my thirst.

Then I started to hear the rain,

Echoing. Tears are nothing but pain.
