The Inside-Out Girl

Location

Outside lives a girl with a smile that can brighten up the room,
Yet, inside hides a girl with a frown full of despair.

Outside lives a girl with bright blue crystal like eyes of joy that can bring you to ease,
Yet, inside hides a girl shedding uncontrollable tears of sadness.

Outside lives a girl with a beautiful laugh that is contagious,
Yet, inside hides a girl SCREAMING out in unwanted anger.

Outside lives a girl with the kind of personality that everyone envies,
Yet, inside hides a girl full of insecurities and unforgettable shame.

Outside lives a girl who seems fearless and tough,
Yet, inside hides a frail weak girl who lives in great fear.

Outside lives a girl full of life,
Yet, inside hides a girl full of great pain, wanting to die. 

Outside lives a girl with a perfect image to uphold,
Yet, inside lives a girl with many regrets and unforgettable mistakes.

Outside lives a girl of pure innocence,
Yet, inside hides a girl with tremendous guilt.

Outside lives a girl with wonderful goals, ambitions, and aspirations,
Inside lives a girl lost in great confusion.

What you see on the outside is merely my personal disguise.

What hides and lives underneath, the real me, you cannot even begin to imagine...
