The War in Her Head

There's a girl 

who sits with her friends. 

She laughs and smiles

though it's all just prtend. 

Each night her smiles turns to a frown

and her laugh into silent tears. 

She screams at the stars,

secretly wanting someone to hear. 

But she knows that

while everyone else is snug in their beds,

they won't give a thought to the girl

with a war raging in her head.
