Inside Out


Outside lives a girl with a smile that will brighten up the room,
Yet inside hides a girl with a frown full of despair.


Outside lives a girl with eyes of joy that brings you to ease,
Yet inside hides a girl shedding tears of sadness.

Outside lives a girl with a beautiful laugh that's contagious,
Yet inside hides a girl screaming her lungs out in unwanted anger.

Outside lives a girl with the personality everyone envies,
Yet inside hides a girl full of insecurities and shame.

Outside lives a girl who is fearless and tough,
Yet inside hides a weak girl who lives in fear.

Outside lives a girl full of life,
Yet inside hides a girl full of pain, wanting to die.

Outside lives a girl with a perfect image,
Yet inside hides a girl with regrets and mistakes.

Outside lives a girl of innocence,
Yet inside hides a girl with tremendous guilt.

Outside lives a girl with goals and aspirations,
Yet inside lives a girl lost in confusion.

What you see on the outside is my personal disguise,
What hides underneath you can't even begin to imagine.

A haunting poem.
The protagonist feels isolated and alone. She feels herself as being perfectly disguised, perfectly invisible.
I think we all wear disguises- some of us are better at hiding.

Came over from Band Back Together. Tremendously powerful poem. I wrote one called Bleeding that talked about smiling on the outside and no one knows you are dieing on the inside. The picture is powerful too.
