What Do They See
Growing up as a child I used to want to know what do they see,
When my friends and family look at me.
Do they see a girl who pretends to smile,
Or someone who just lingers for a while.
I used to look in the mirror and stare in my eyes,
Wishing to see rainbows and butterflies.
But to my confirmation, that's not what I saw,
Instead I saw a girl with her heart on the floor.
All I wanted was to be noticed by the people around me,
Instead they only saw someone that they didn't want to see.
To this day I am trying to put my feelings aside,
Even though it is so hard and I hurt inside.
I will continue to smile and pretend to be glad,
When the truth is, I'm always so sad
