Not What It Seems

You believe i'm happy when you take a look at me
But i'm in so much pain you see,
Just take a glimps in my eye's and
You will see
My looks are not what they seem to be

You believe I live a great life
Don't lie, I heard your whispers and
I seen your stares
Just walk a mile in my shoes and 
You will see
My life is not what it seems to be

I heard you think I got it all
Well you heard wrong
My life is so incomplete
Your the one with the dad, not me
Your the one with the friends
So tell me why you hate me when
I'm not at all what I seem to be

    Breana, While your life may be hard, your poetry is beautiful!! I've always believed we should not try to judge others. Have you read "Richard Cory" by E.A. Robinson? Everyone thought he had a great life too, that is, everyone except Richard himself. Nice writing style, Carolyn

    Man, I read that one a few times, and you pretty much seemed to pen the words in my mind, on paper. I know it's hard, but it will get better, eventually. ~Jen~

    Deep write Breana, you will find out later in life that haters are everywhere, at school, at work, in the stores, malls, everywhere, they hate you and they don't even know you, I learned to just ignore,don't give the satisfaction of responding... thoughtfully expressed..great poem, keep up the good work *Tyesha
