Whenever I'M Down - Poem by John W. McEwers

Sometimes things just aren't what they seem
Like when I put on a smiley face for everyone to see
When inside I feel like a raging inferno struggling to break free
And tell everyone to leave me alone
and have everyone go get a life.
I sometimes put on faces that aren't mine,
because its easier that way.
No one asks the right questions.
Sometimes I wish they'd all go away.

But they don't.
So I color my face with bright shades
And say Hello cheerily.
They will never know
How well I wear
My mask
whenever I'm down
