I Seem To Be, But Really Am - Poem by audrey perez

i seem to be happy
but i really am sad
i seem to be laughing
but i really am holding back the tears
i seem to be free
but i really am locked in a cage
i seem to be glad
but i really dont understand
i seem to be annoyed
but i really am tired of being treated like a toy
i seem to be a lion
but i really am a fish
i seem to be liveing life
but i really am liveing in dispite
i seem to be a bully
but i really scared of being ran over
i seem to be head high
but i really am underneath my shoulders
i seem to be a child that dont understand
but i really am a woman that understands what she has
