Look and See the Real Me

You'll never know the secrets
that I keep hidden inside
You'll never know the guilt I've felt
voicing all those lies.

You just see an angry girl,
spiteful, angry, cruel
You'll never know the problems
I faced, 7th grade, in school.

For no one really listens,
no one really cares
'cause sometimes all my pain
is too much for me to bear.

Sometimes when you scold me,
I shrivel up inside
the kind, caring daughter
is the one that goes and hides

So I clench my teeth and bite my lip
keep these emotions inside
while you ramble on and on and on
about how I lied, lied, lied.
