Favorite Quote:
Be yourself; because those who care don't matter and those who matter don't care. :)

--Dr. Seuss

Tears wrapped in a charming smile,
Depression disguised as joy,
Blindness hidden by brilliant color,
Care for myself seems to be love for another,
Disinterest shadowed by curiosity,
Self-defense mistaken for confidence,
Another person occupies the outside,
While a vulnerable me stays inside.

The author's comments:
It's interesting how even when you're having a bad day you still put a happy face for the world. That's what this poem is about.
