'I appear cheerful, but inside I am sad.
I smile when I'm crushed.
I scream, but the words don't come out.
I try to talk, but choke instead.
I'm loud when I'm quiet.
I'm quiet when I'm loud.
I change to fit in.
I pretend to care.
I really care, then pretend I don't.
I am popular, but lonely.
I am lonely in a crowd.
Can anyone see my pain?'
