what you see


I used to know who I was
but now when I look in the mirror
I wonder what you see
and it's all because

you make it seem like I'm oppressed
is it because I stay at home like you?
you tell your kids I'm a terrorist
is it because I'm fully dressed?
is that what you see?

but when I look in the mirror, I see a girl
who goes to school and likes to laugh
and read books and hang with friends
but is that what you see?
