My Many Masks

My smile hides my tears,

My laugh hides my screams,

Life is but a paradox,

And nothing is as it seems.


I find things to be happy,

And things that bring me joy,

But the truth is deep down,

I am just a little boy.


I doubt anyone really knows me,

They just know I exist.

I wish I could just live free,

Without the fear of being dismissed.


But over time I have learned,

To keep these feelings at bay,

Cause everyone around me

Is drowning in their own way.


I wish my people understood me,

I wish they stuck around more,

Part of me doubts if they ever were my people,

Or just human who were bored.
