Mask by Amanda

I am lonely in a group of many
I am lonely in a group of one
I am lonely when there is any
I am lonely when there is none
A smile is plastered on my face
A smile is plastered through out the day
A smile I give them and a laugh if they choose
A smile I give them but yet a smile I lose
This mask of perfection I wear everyday
Is a mask of pretection in my own little way
I wear it by choice
But is this choice my own
I wear it at school and when on the phone
The mask of perfection is torn off my face
And my cloths are ripped from me
When I am in this place
This place is my house
But is it my home
When I am here I am all alone
Vulnerable and naked while here am I
They hurt me
I hurt them
When I start to cry my tears are not visable
But inside I die
Then my mask I pick up
And put in it's place
I run from this house
With my smiling face
Back to the begining
I'll gladly go
A smiling I'm giving
To those who are in need
Of love and of living
But who cares for me?
