When you look at me what do you see?
Beauty, Brains, Ugly, Vain?
I’ll tell you what I see, eyes staring back at me
It gives me great anxiety but I know that I should not be afraid
Everyone goes through this, some handle it better than others
See this is life, but to many this is a struggle
It only deepens the more we venture out
We wish to appear confident, and happy but that person inside is not letting up
We crumble and hide, hoping someone will find us, and hear us out
Instead, everyone looks and we see the confusion on their faces
Why are they staring? Am i letting it show?
I must be the only one who suffers and that is why no one must know
But those eyes, they struggle too
Some depression, some anger, some self-esteem
You are not alone, let it be known
Everyone has a story, a burden they bear
Most just keep private, it’s too much to share
But you are not alone, you will overcome
and be able to tell and share your story with everyone.
