My breathing was hitched,
Mistaken: thinking they were friends.
My thoughts obscured,
Wishing that I could understand why.
My voice was shaky,
Scared that I would never be worth it.
My heart pounded,
Wondering why no one would even glance.
My breathing slowed,
Realizing that their friendships don't matter.
My thoughts cleared,
Knowing that there would never be an answer.
My voice strengthened,
Not caring if they don't think I'm worthy.
My heart steadied,
Suddenly everyone couldn't stop looking.
