I wrote this poem about 5 years ago as a song. It was one of my naïve times of life. However, now, it's just a poem. My best friend loves it, so, I'll post it for her.
Do you often ask yourself if your life is perfect?
Do you wonder if anyone cares?
Do you often wish you were someone else
Just so you'll have someone there?
Because inside you there's a person
Wanting so badly to be let out and loved
But outside you have a reputation
And your face just isn't pretty enough
You aren't in the "in" crowd
And you've been cause out of the "out"
You're feeling so unloved
That every moved is shrouded in doubt
Inside you feel you're in a crowded room
Screaming at the top of your lungs
But no one so much as looks up
To see where the noise is coming from
You look in the mirror
Your reflection comes back
You smile for the first time in awhile
You wonder how anyone could cast you out
And turn out to be so vile
Rejection hurts, or so you've found out
But you must go on with your life
Because one day you'll find that someone
Who likes you for who you are
But until you do
You've always got me to help you get that far
