I see

You look at what I do
You just see words
But when I look I see more
I see emotions running strong
I see a heart bared for all
I see fears of not being accepted
Fears of people's scorn
But most of all I see
I see what wasn't meant to be seen
I see a girl afraid to grow up
A girl not sure of her life
A girl too self conscious to live
This girl shows the world a face
She hides behind that face afraid
Afraid of what will happen when she leaves
When she shows the world the true her
Few see this girl's true self
Most see just that mask and think its real
I see this girl hidden in my poetry
I see because she is me
