On the Inside and on the Outside

by Maura

On the inside,

Sadness,

Pain,

Sorrow.

On the outside,

False happiness,

Content,

Joy.

On the inside,

Drooping eyelids,

Stringy hair,

Bad skin.

On the outside,

Deep eye makeup,

A trendy new hat,

Cover-up.

On the inside,

Eternal frowns,

Infected earlobes,

Broken heart.

On the outside,

Phony ever-lasting smiles,

Earrings making the pain worse,

Pretend everything's fine.

On the inside,

I suffer.

On the outside,

A stranger suffers too.
