Who am I?

I'm just a happy guy,

At least that's who I am on the outside,

I keep a mask of a smile to hide my frown,

So my sadness doesn't bring others down,

But if you want to know the truth about me,

All you need to do is look past what you see,

Instead of the laughter, the child acting like a fool like a fool,

There's someone who's crying, lonely soul being used like a tool,

The benefit of others is all I can commit,

Even if it means my own happiness is forfeit,

I'll still hold this pain and sorrow inside,

It's like hide and seek and they have to hide,

Until someone finally sees within,

And looks beyond the skin.
