I don't want the sympathetic looks

I don't want the sad faces

I don't need you to worry

I've taken care of myself

For about all my life

I've dealt with it on my own

For so long

Now that you know

Now that I've let you in

I know this is what comes

All I wanted

Was for you to know

Know the real me

The person behind the smiles

I wanted you to see the tears

That I cry silently

The invisible tears

That fight to be let free

I'm a strong girl in front of everyone

And I know now you're just waiting

To see a tear fall

To see my weakness break through

To see me break,

and fall against this weight

I know I'll be alright

But do you know too

Do you believe in my strength

Or do you see into my eyes

And see all that goes through me

All the words yelled

All the pain I've seen and been through

I beg you to look into my eyes

See everything I want you to know

Because I can't show weakness

I can't be vulnerable

I can't wait for someone else to hurt me

See past my smile

See past my fake me

Maybe just maybe

You'll see the cloud above my head

The rain drizzling

Maybe you'll finally see

What you really want to see

The real me.
