My facade me

By: Jackie Trammell

I used to rely on compliments
But now I strive off them
I used to keep my chin up
But now I cry non-stop
I used to follow my sister
But now I lead us deeper in the dark
I used to try to be myself
But now it’s no use trying

I seem to be all smiles
But really I am lost
I seem to be calm and collected
But really I am screaming to speak
I seem to be boy crazy
But really I am just wanting to be loved
I seem to be confused
But really I am set on what I want
