A life full of pretensions
A life full of hidden emotions
A life lived with many questions
A life given to accomplish missions.
Behind every happy face lies the sorrow
Behind every smile lies the pain
Behind every silence lies the law
Behind every sunny and bright life there’s rain.
It’s hard to act that I’m fine
Though giving up is already next in line
It’s hard to convince myself that I’m strong
When around me seems so wrong.
Every day, I always manage to smile
Though my mind is wandering far as a mile
Every time tears want to roll down my cheeks
I always pretend to be okay and not sick.
Deep inside me is slowly dying
Those plastic treatments are slowly killing
The guffaws that I tried to give
Somehow makes me feel relieved.
Despite those forced smiles that I’ve flashed
The realization in me came in a rush
That though life is giving me so much suffering
Still I have to continue and keep on winning.
Behind this mask is a coward girl
And not as brilliant as a pearl
Behind this mask is a weak one
And I need people to lend me a hand.
