A bird locked in a cage

Don’t let people see the monster kept within

 

All these feelings hidden away

The bars on my cage have been worn thin

 

A “Genuine” smile, that doesn’t reach my eyes

Hiding who I am, it doesn’t feel right

 

Drowning in a pool of lies

Just smile and nod, “I swear I’m alright”

 

Walking on a tightrope,

a gust of wind and I’ll fall

 

Keep everyone at bay,

I’m seperated by the wall

 

Grabbing the sledge hammer

this wall is coming down

 

Hit it once,

it falls making no sound

 

I’m no longer seperated

Everyone simply stops to stare

 

I am here and I am proud

A fake smile I will never again wear
