My Family Hates Me 
By Sarah Kirby 

My expressions show happiness 
You of all should know how well I hide the sadness

For years I've been forgotten
Always being compared to stars that give off a fake glow 
My heart aches but I know I can't let it show 
I let the pain engulf me
Let myself be attacked by words of hate from those I loved 
You of all should know why I hide from my beloved 

How would a child live this way 
A life full of pain and torture
Trading tears for fake smiles 
Emitting off a false sense of security that I am fine 
Sad to say I'm not

My expressions show happiness but,
Emptiness is what lies inside
