Masquerade

Another day, another lie,
she wears her mask again;
Silent scream, silent cry,
as she tries hard to blend;
Nobody notices her tears,
the mask covers them well;
They don't know her fears,
as she vowed not to tell;
She wants to be seen happy,
even if she's aching;
She doesn't want anyone to worry,
even if she's already dying.
