What Do You See

What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see someone who is scared?
Or do you see someone who is brave?
When you look at me do you see someone wild?
Or someone who is calm and behaves?
Do you see someone sad and crying?
Or do you see someone who is laughing and joyful?
What do you see?

When you look at me what do you see?
Someone confident and smart?
Or someone shy and wanting to part?
Do you see lies?
Or do you see the truth when you look at me?
When you see me do you see a quiet and hushed child?
Or do you see a loud and rushed child?
What do you see?

What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see me as smart or dumb or somewhere in between?
Do you see someone too young or too old to be your friend because I’m only a teen?
Someone too skinny or too fat?
Someone ugly or someone beautiful?
Or am I just right?
If I am right then let me be me, for when you see me
Do you see what you want, or do you see who I am?
What do you see?

Hi DEBORAH.. this is a powerful, well constructed write, that I enjoyed reading today! I want to WELCOME you to Poetry Soup, a great place to display your creative, artist works. It's also an ideal place to meet and be shaped by other poets. I read a lot of poems and I'm looking forward to checking out more of your works. PS.. If you have a moment, check out my poems as well. I'm looking forward to becoming friends with those who do (Iron sharpens Iron).. Talk soon, LYRIC MAN
