Behind the Mask 

Look straight my face,
What do you see?
The underlying tears,
and the victimized soul? 
I doubt,

When all they ever wanted was to see me cry, 
Well i never did,
Why? 
Because i got that strong mask i wear 
when it all seems weak.
I got that happy mask i wear,
when it all looks sad.
 I got a smiling mask I wear,
when frowning is the only option, 
But, behind the mask [ behind the mask] 
Lives all the sorrows and scars I hide. 

I smile through the pain,
I laugh through the sorrows,
But behind the mask, 
Inside its dark.
