Nobody truly sees the me inside of me
They only see what is visible to the naked eye
And off of that, they judge me
They don't get to know me and they don't know my fight
They don't see the person inside of me trying to escape
Trying to see the light
But when they break free, will the light burn their skin?
Will the light burn their eyes?
It scares me to not know who exactly I am within
According to this messed up society
I wouldn't even qualify to take a test of beauty
And only simply because my hair isn't long
And my stomach isn't flat
My legs aren't long
I might be short and stumpy
BUT DO YOU SEE THE ME INSIDE OF ME?
Do you know who she is? DO you know how bad she wants to be free?
Forget what you see at first glance
Look deeper inside of me, and you'll see the true beauty that matters
I am exuberant and hard working
I deserve to be recognized as the beautiful person I truly am
Who are you to tell me I am not good enough?
Who are you to set standards for who I should be?
Putting me behind a curtain
Putting me at a status of invisibility
And it astonishes me how I let the ridiculous standards that were set
Affect me and how I leave my mark
Bump it! IM breaking out
Being who I wish to be
I’m going to stop caring about who has something to say about me
THIS IS ME
The real me
The me you absolutely refuse to open your eyes to see
Oh who am I kidding?
I’m not fit for it
I’ll crawl back behind this curtain
And I’m almost certain the person I am inside
Is now lost, dead from loss of pride
All because no one tried to open not only their eyes, but their hearts and see
Rest in peace to me.
