    An Act
    By Damaya
    (Grade 9)

    On the outside
    A pasted smile upon my lips
    My happy, loving eyes
    Putting on an act
    My friends don’t notice anything
    Only the happy person that I am
    Inside, My heart achs
    My soul crying out
    I was only putting on an act
    Tears making streams down my cheeks
    Onto my lips
    Down my chin
    Onto my shirt
    Down to the floor
    Tasting that salty teary, taste
    I try to be happy
    I feel trapped
    I want to break free
    I want to be me
