28. Dirt Under Her Nails

 

When she walked into school with a smile

She was wearing a mask

for a while

Nobody could see what she really thought

She was brave

Afraid to be caught

They scan her up and down

She looked fine

as she walked through town

 

She looks all fine before you see

What she is hiding

Underneath

She can smile through snow and hail

But nobody noticed the dirt 

under her nails

 

Her family never saw her behind her mask

She always wore that smile

it was her task

She never wanted the world to see

what she was hiding

underneath

she wore a case over her heart

to hide the fact

it was broken apart

 

She looks all fine before you see

What she is hiding

Underneath

She can smile through snow and hail

But nobody noticed the dirt 

under her nails

 

Her smile big and proud

her voice is quiet

but her words are loud

She is truly kind if only you could see

what she was hiding 

underneath

Either a heart of gold or lead

she just wishes

for her words to be said

 

She looks all fine before you see

What she is hiding

Underneath

She can smile through snow and hail

But nobody noticed the dirt 

under her nails
