Behind the Curtain

Location

They think I am tough, they think I am mean,
But many things aren't as they seem.
I am a soft-hearted, teary-eyed girl.
I am not like the rest of the world.
I want to love with open arms,
But I am afraid of being harmed.
My emotions are juggled within my brain.
No one knows my eternal pain.
I have many burdens.
This is the life I live, behind the curtain.
