Written By Sahanaa Reddy (Grade 10)
Sometimes all you want to do
But deep down,
You just want to be found.
All that others can see is a,
Face playing dumb
But what they do not see is those
Million thoughts playing numb making you numb.
Everyone sees your joy in
Making others laugh
But what they do not see is
All of those stings in your heart.
Everyone sees you lending a shoulder,
Even when you keep getting hit by boulders.
Silently battling and bottling
Is all that you know.
Not sorrow but smiles,
Is all that you show.
When your mouth wants to blabber
To millions of souls,
But the words are beheld,
By those scars that you do not show.
