I try to hide
in the crowd 
I don't trust 

I don't talk to anyone 
when I do 
I get hurt 

regretting trusting people 
holding back my pain and tears 
with a smile on my face 

sadness hiding behind my smile 
walking through life with knives 
stabbing me in the back 

My smile blinding everyone 
fooling everybody 
except me
