Faking smiles

Faking laughs

Only showing strength

Dying on the inside



On my weakest days

I am strong for everyone

No one knows something is wrong

But you can only bend so much

Until you break


Nobody can read me anymore

Only the pages I write on

And my pillow full of tears

Know what's honestly wrong

Because I'm masked
