    A Mask

    Underneath this mask, That the rest of the world sees, Lies a broken soul, That only few know. Beneath this mask, Is nothing but loss, Nothing but depression, Nothing but hopelessness. And to the rest of the world, This mask in confidence, This mask is pride, This mask is...

    Everyone Wears A Mask Of Happiness I Reckon

    at some stage someone - everyone - is going to wear a 'mask' of happiness to mask the bad things that are happening in their lives. i mean, no one can be happy 24/7 (except maybe little kids who are oblivious to the world). i've had numerous times where i've had to wear this...

    Why?

    Because I feel like if I show my real emotions on my sleeve, there is a possibility that some people will abuse you because they find you an "easy" target. I only show my genuine emotions to people I feel like I can trust, and heck I usually have a good instinct on who I can...

    The iSmile

    One day, I just couldn't take it. I was tired of pretending everything was ok, and I decided to show my friends how I really feel. I turned to them for support, and thought they would be able to comfort me (with my depression), but I got a different response. They basically made...
