What Seems

Teen Girl


You’ve seen me as many things
As a groovy chick
Who’s fierce and bad.
You’ve seen me as a bad thing
Sad and lonely
Mean and sketchy
You’ve seen me in good times
Chill and gravy
Fun and carefree.

But have you seen me
As the real me?

So many defenses to block you out
Because inside I’m really scared.
I love my Mom and sister
I don’t want to do these things.
My home’s perfect
I should stay there more often.
My heart longs for some stability
And I don’t mean a boy
I care too much to go on like this anymore

So, can you see the real me?
