Everyone who knows me knows I’m happy.
I laugh and joke around with my friends.
Whenever I see someone sad,
I try to turn their frown upside down.
Everyone who knows me knows I’m helpful.
I teach and guide others.
I hold the door open,
Even when my hands are full.
Everyone who knows me knows I’m nerdy.
I love to watch anime and Doctor Who.
I’ve been reading books since I was young,
And the library is my second home.
Everyone who knows me doesn’t know that I’m troubled.
I cry on the inside,
But not a single tear graces my face.
Everyone who knows me doesn’t know that I’m detached.
I shut out friends emotionally,
Even when I don’t want to.
Everyone who knows me doesn’t know that I’m deceiving.
I show others only what I want them to see.
Everyone who knows me should know that they don’t know the real me.

What a great piece. It’s how most of us are, aren’t we? We all have our inner battles, and this reminds us not to judge another so harshly, as they have their own fights to fight too. Great message here. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for reading! I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was one of the first original pieces I had written in a while, and I just found it again.
