A perfect wife,

A perfect mother.

They count on me,

To be some other.

A perfect daughter,

A perfect friend.

They all want me to pretend.

A perfect body,

A perfect mind.

They want it all,

But they’re so blind.

They cannot see

What lies behind

The perfect mask

I wear tonight.

I smile

I laugh

I tell a story

While deep inside

My heart feels sorry

For the little girl

Hiding inside

The one they don’t know about,

The one they don’t like.

She cries alone

And looks at me

While I tell the world

That she’s not me.
