Inside i'm nothing

Inside i'm a shadow,

lost in the dark

Inside I'm looking out 

wondering who that person is

that looks like me

Outside i'm laughing

Outside I'm happy

Outside I can hide the hurt

I can hide pain and lonliness

But inside i'm nothing 


Kandis Peterson

All of it of course!
