I tried so hard to smile today,
to keep my sorrow locked away.
But the comment you made, cut me down,
wiped my smile and made me frown.
The way you spoke behind my back,
gave my heart a hefty whack.
I’ve always tried to give and please,
I don’t understand, your need to tease.
When you stared at me, I held back tears,
I felt surrounded by my fears,
I’m filled with dread, I want to run,
far away from everyone.
