The Perfect Little Girl
The Perfect Little Girl 
How happy this girl seems to be
Smiling for the world to see
Perfection seems to be her name
In this never-ending game

Laughing so the world won't know
That this smile's just for show
Walking with her head held high
So nobody will see her cry

How perfect her whole life appears
Seeming happy through the years
Using smiles and laughs and jokes
To hide the heart that has been broke...

And tonight she'll lock her bedroom door
Collapsing down onto the floor
With smeared mascara on her face
Praying she could leave this place...

But tomorrow's just another day
That she'll wipe the tears away
Another day for this sad girl
To fake a smile and fool the world

Very touching poetry.  Very well-written.  Clear in its meaning and no extra words.  Very good writing.  Now then: you are young.  As you age, you gradually begin to be able to be yourself -- and after many years -- you almost don't care at all what other people think.  You're entitled to be yourself.  You have to right to feel what you feel.  But it takes time to learn that...  maybe you can skip over some of those years -- and learn something of it ahead of time, what?   --David
