who do i see

When I look into these eyes
I find things no one else ever catches a glimpse at

I see this fear of judgment 
that makes her cower at confrontation

I see this hopelessness for the future 
that make her choices her burden alone

I see this desperate need for companionship to make her strong 
in the savage world of humans

I see this courage 
caged in her thoughts of inferiority

I see these thoughts of abandonment 
that make her cling to anything

I see this devotion to her beliefs 
that makes her fear death

And I hate that the person I always see is me.
