behind the eyes

we put on masks
and make faces
we smile without
bearing the pain inside
we deceive ourselves
with mind-games
we try to shut out
what is really real
we try to please
when we'd rather shout
we try to walk
when we'd rather run
we are brave
in a whirlpool of fear
we are supportive
with wobbly legs

but the fact remains:
we are just kids
pretending to be
