Teenager Poem

Take A Look

© Maria
Take a look at me
Tell me what you see
Do you see my forceful smile
The smile that hides so many secrets
Do you see the tears in my eyes
The eyes that once took into much evil

Do you see my heart
The heart that holds hurt & shame inside
Do you see my skin
The skin that holds scars of pain

Do you hide my secrets
Do you see the evil
Do you feel my hurt, my shame
Do you see my scars

So take a look
Tell me what you see
