You Don't Know

 
 
You don't know me, but you think you do. You don't know me, but my name fills your mouth everyday. You don't know me because if you did, you'd fall into depression due to your constant obsession. You really don't know me, if you did, you'd know that I never lived in a house. That I never had a home to call my own. You'd know that my father didn't want me. You'd know that all I wanted was to be free. You think you know, but you don't. If you did, you'd know that  I fake my happiness and all of my smiles. I fake my conversations all the time. You'd know that I am insecure about who I am. You'd know that I try to be a better me everyday. I fight my depression because I want to succeed, but all you see is a pretty face with pretty dollar bills. You don't know me, but you think you do. You don't know me and you'd never ever have a clue.
