Can You See

I am lost
Broken inside
Filled with anxieties
And forgotten dreams
If you look at me
Truly look
What do you see
Do you see the scars
Faint letters on the inside of my arm
From the first time I harmed
An odd indent on my knee
From falling off stairs onto a single rock
Do you see the silent words
Trapped between my ears
Waiting for the perfect moment
But missing it each time
Can you see past the smiles
See the self doubt beneath
The hope for a bright tomorrow
Peeking through yesterday’s shadows
Do you see any of this
Or just the smiling mask
