A Better Day

Surrounded by people,
though I feel so alone.
I join in a conversation,
yet I stand on my own.
Why does this happen?
Why do I feel this way?
Seems no matter what.
I just can't break away.

A smile on my face,
my sadness to hide.
I laugh out loud,
yet I'm crying inside.
I'm trying so hard,
to make it all go away,
but the feeling of loneliness,
just wants to stay.
Here's hoping tomorrow will be a much better day.
