I am always the one who has to put on a brave face. 

I am always the one who has to put on a brave face. 

"Smile honey, no one likes a frown."
Be strong when others find themselves weak.
"Sweetie, dressing like that will get you no where."
I feel like inside I am going to explode.
"Baby girl, guys don't like you."
Trying to hide the real me is eating me up.
"Darling, just be quiet."

Why cant I open up to people?
Why do I have a wall blocking people out?
Why did my dad leave me?
Why do I try to hide my sexuality?

Why cant I just be me...?
