The Hidden Mask
by: Meredith

Why are they happy
When I am sad?
How can they ignore my feelings,
When they are needed the most?
I listen to their hopes and dreams,
Why do they not listen to mine?

I understand their problems,
Try to help them,
But no one can help me,
They think I am happy,
They do not see the mask behind which I hide.

They laugh when I'm in tears,
Things are funny to them--not to me.
How do I get rid of this mask?
This thing they do not see or recognize.

What am I hiding from?
Why must I cover my feelings?
Why am I scared,
That they will find out what I am feeling?
