Do you see my sadness?

Does the lie I tell through the smile on my face

deceive you into believing I am happy,

Or can you see beneath the surface

to the despair that lives inside me?

Making sure you don't upset the ones you love

So you hideĀ  your sadness behind the mask.

Only the feelings of emptiness this leave you

Make you feel as if you don't belong in your own life.
