Am I Broken Or Am I Whole?

Published: February 2015

look into my eyes
and tell me what you see
do you see a reckless girl
or someone depressed at 15?

do you dare see the tears
that spread across my skin?
do you see all my losses
or the very few I win?

if you dare to touch my hand
will you feel my softness
or will you feel the calluses
from burns and feeling-less?

do you see unflawed youth
or do you see a broken child?
do you see all my pain
or do you see me just as wild?

can you tell I'm screaming
out for help I need?
or am I just the silence of
the whistling wind without heed?

look into these eyes
and peer into my soul
tell me what do you see
am I broken or am I whole?
