Random Poem:

Porcelain Doll

I am a Porcelain Doll,
With a painted smile on my face,
Most of the time I am happy,
But sometimes I have to play a part,
People would become concerned if I wasn't happy,
If I wasn't cheery and joyful,
But sometimes, sometimes, I can't act and can't pretend,
I can't be the person everyone wants me to be,
I just need to be myself,
But that's not always someone people would enjoy,
I am just a Porcelain Doll.
