The daily show

What is on the outside isn't always an accurate reflection of what is inside.

Mask

Nightfall brings alarming thoughts,
Time slowly passes by.
Sunrise watched through teary eyes,
I rise in silence as I cry.

Turn on the smile before opening the door,
Stepping forth onto life's grand stage.
Hiding all my pain and fear,
On day arrest in my minds cage.

All who claim acquaintance,
Only see the daily show.
That smiling and happy girl,
With which there is so much they don't know.



Until you dig a little deeper you can't really "know" a person , there is usually so much more going on than what meets the eye.
