Yes she smiles, yes she laughs but when she gets home she cuts the act.
Just cause shes happy with her friends doesnt mean its real,
but she does it so people dont see the way she feels.
So while shes there shell smile and try, but when shes here she frowns and doesnt even try, times like this she wants to cry
but people walk in and she tries once more.
So the smile appears and the frown goes away,
she holds in the tears for the very next day.

Like my theatre teacher says, its not hard to write about something you know, something you go through everydy.

wow! i love this poem! i can relate, it's really hard, but sometimes i just put on a mask for my friends.....

i like your writing style, it rhymes but it doesn't really feel like you are trying to make it rhyme :)
