Depressed?

People say I'm perfect,
but they don't know that behind the grades
my life crumbles before my eyes.
No one knows who I truly am.
Well, I'll tell you who I am.
I'm a girl who wants to be wild and crazy like a normal kid
but can't because I'm expected to be a perfect little girl
to live up to my perfect cousin,
but I'm not her ,
and I don't want to be her.
I'm a girl that has been picked on
and called so many names
that I've started to believe it.
I remember when I used to be an outgoing girl,
but now I hide in my she'll,
afraid of what people might think.
My life is messed up behind the perfect show,
and no one knows it.
People in my family even try to hide it,
but they raised a smart girl,
and I know everything.
For now I'll keep playing the perfect child,
but soon enough
my outer shell is going to crack,
and they better be prepared for what emerges,
what conflicts I'll cause,
what family disagreements will occur
because even I don't know...
