How do you see me?
Because all I see is a scared little girl
All I see is someone to concerned with her outward appearance
Someone who is terrified to laugh
To say anything
For a fear of looking stupid
Tell me you see someone else
Not the shy girl I pretend to be
Not the nerd with her nose in a book
And her back to the world
Tell me you see someone more
Than the girl I see in the mirror

I wrote this when I was struggling with self-confidence. Writing has always been my way of putting these feelings into words and freeing myself.
