Oh, how great are we at fooling people,
With our happy, carefree laughs
Why would anyone think something is adrift?
If we could get a dollar for every time we put on a facade,
We would be living like royalty,
With grand castles and humongous mansions.
But we would never let anyone enter,
Because if they ever saw our dark walls
They would tear us apart.
You think you know us,
But you really don’t,
Our faces are manipulating,
But our eyes are not.
Eyes are the windows to our souls,
They show who we truly are.
If you ever look into our eyes,
You will realize,
Our soul is surrounded in darkness,
Mocked with loneliness,
Disorientated with anxiety,
Mislead by depression,
And tortured by pain.
Why do we never come out you say?
Every time we try,
We are given pity,
We hear angry voices,
Not calming melodies.
We are looked with disgust,
No one sees that we are broken,
No one hears our muffled cries through the night.
Some say they care,
But that’s a lie
When we really need them,
They say goodbye.
We are unwanted,
So, we fulfill your wishes.
We forever remain the hidden people.
