Beneath the ivory doll...
Are dark circles around my eyes, I sleep 3 to 4 hours a night
I worry over everything
Yet I don't say anything
I don't want to be selfish.
You see a girl with long blonde hair
Yet I see greying temples that pass as blonde
You hear a small voice and a smile that causes everyone to smile in response
I hear a classic glass coca cola bottle cracking,
A little me inside,
with vocal cords,
wanting to break open and shatter the sound barrier!
And I see a frown most of the time, I just don't like complaining about my problems when others have it so much worse.
I don't have even colored skin and pink rosy cheeks.
I blush at everything, but my whole face goes cherry red.
You see I'm small and petite and fragile, but I can swim laps in pools for hours.
I may not have curves, but I got abs anyone would die for.
I want to dance spontaneously when I get into the music
But I don't dare move a muscle.
You see a ivory glass doll, but you don't see the determination, muscle, or personality beneath.
But that's not your fault, I keep to myself, because that's what ivory dolls do.
