Silent Screams

On the outside
I look fine,
Appearances are deceiving.
I’ll smile and say hello
while on the inside i am screaming.

On the outside
I’m well dressed,
Appearances are deceiving.
My make up done just right
while on the inside i am screaming.

On the inside
I’m not fine,
Appearances are deceiving.
My head is in a spin
on the inside I am screaming.

On the inside
I’m a mess,
Appearances are deceiving.
Can’t you see me struggle
don’t you hear me screaming.

At some time in our lives we all hear our inner scream, when we feel so much all at once, that we feel like we will explode. Here i’ve tried to put into words how different we can appear on the outside to what is going on inside.


inside, scream, emotions, turmoil, inner, appearance, deceiving
