I Fail At This
To be honest, it's hard for me to try to pretend anymore. I know everyone saw through my smiles, and now that I no longer do that sort of thing, everyone's asking me why I'm so down. I don't frown for attention; in fact I'd rather nobody ask, since the answer is something that will just burden them since there is no solution to my troubles. We pretend for those around us. I for my mother, although she's known for years that I've been throwing a mask on.
