Depression Poem

I'm Not The Person You See

This poem is about my everyday life and people not being able to see the real me. But in this poem I'm telling them that my smile they see every day is fake.

When You Look At Me


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2017 with permission of the Author.

When you look at me,
What do you see?
I bet if you look deep enough
You would see right through me.
If you look deep in my eyes,
You would forget all my lies.
You would tell that I'm hurt.
All you have to do is be more alert.
Do you know what it's like
To cry silently every night?
What y'all really see
Is not the real me.
I'm broken inside,
Even if you don't see it,
So look at me again.
What do you see?
