“How are you?”

I’m fine.

That’s my response whenever asks me “How are you?”.
I don’t want them to see that I’m actually blue.

People refer to  me as the sun.
They all see a bright, smiling girl.
No worries or struggles- just fun.

Behind that mask is a girl
Hidden from the world.
Because she knows that people will judge her.

She hides her insecurities with a small smile.
And no one noticed.
At least not for awhile.

But then came today.
The day when the false mask went completely away.

And out came a fragile little soul.
One whose story has not yet been told.
For she has been hidden away for so long,
That she does not know what is right and what is wrong.

That girl that came out
The one you now see?
It’s me.
Lizzie.
