Someone once asked me why didn't I smile. When I was younger I smiled just to show them why I didn't, their reaction was like everyone else's. They cringed and faked a smile, I would always go home and cry my eyes out for I was a freak back then. Years later I begged my parents for braces, I'd go home everyday crying about how I got bullied. In middle school I got braces and stopped being considered a freak. Now whenever people ask me to smile I just nicely reject them for I don't want them to see what I've become. A teenager who is scared of the world, and everything it has to offer.
