I Am Jamal



I am the KID you see before you smiling

I will be there to comfort you to stop you from crying

But behind closed doors I have my fears to hide

Crying at night so no one see's my tears, praying the sun won't rise

But I put on my poker face mask

So no one can see the pain of my past

When you see my smile understand it doesn't last

Cause I'll continuously be haunted by the troubles of my past.
