Just Peachy - Poem by Ebone' Ingram

I'm fine,
Never better.
(Unless you count the pain,
The jealousy and anger,
Dejection, the desire for
Acceptance, and
Having to wear a Mask
Every single minute
To hide my emotions
from those who seek to
Break me down again)
Yeah, I'm just peachy;
So let's get on with today.

    Hello all. Just thought I'd say that this poem's ANCIENT. I wrote it in like 7th grade (& I'm a junior now...) If it sux, that's why; I was a horrible poet then, I think...Something like that.
