Inner Battle

They are lost and scared

But, nobody has cared

We were wrong

They thought they just didn't belong

They put on a mask

They try to act naturally

It's not an easy task

The change comes gradually

They battle with themselves

A fight no one can win

Face their insecurities

It is such a sin

I wish I could help them

If they would let me in

Into their thoughts of sadness

I wonder how it has been

Hopeless and disappointed

Does it not feel pointless

I hope they win the war against depression

Before their whole world starts to darken
