They See Me

They see me,
But it's only who I wish I could be.
They see the "Loud"
When in my mind no one's proud.

People always have to be near,
Or it builds up..the pain, the fear.
They see me as a social butterfly,
But people in my life have left me to cry.

My life is full of error and trial,
But all they see is the smile.
They see me,
But it's only who I wish I could be.

I've been hurt and let down,
But you will hardly see the frown.
My life has been a huge rough patch,
This is why what you see and how I feel don't match.

They see me,
But it's only who I wish I could be.
