you always talk of hiding yourself

in a place no one can see

and when i ask you who you're hiding from

your eyes answer with "it's me"

why are you so afraid to be you?

i've never seen anyone better

why would you trade your beauty for fame

say always but mean never?

your unique is worth a million times

what they offer with their same

why would you cheat yourself from your own life?

what do you think you can gain?

you're anything a heart could want

wallflower or high school star

but the only way i want you

is exactly as you are.

a/n: tis isn't about anyone... it came to me while i was listening to music... that honestly had nothing to do with the poem. haha. spontaneous inspiration is an amazing thing.
