Poem: I See Me

When I look into these eyes I find things no one else ever catches a glimpse at I see this fear of judgment that makes her cower at confrontation I see this hopelessness for the future that make her choices her burden alone

When I look into these eyes
I find things no one else ever catches a glimpse at I see this fear of judgment

that makes her cower at confrontation

I see this hopelessness for the future that make her choices her burden alone

I see this desperate need for companionship to make her strong in the savage world of humans

I see this courage caged in her thoughts of inferiority

I see these thoughts of abandonment that make her cling to anything I see this devotion to her beliefs that makes her fear death

And I hate that the person I always see is me.

Ends
