See Me

Look in my eyes

What do you see

Do you see a cheerful girl

No faults in her skin

A perfect family

The will to live

Or…. do you see me

A girl with demons inside

History that haunts her

Family that's nothing like the magazines

The rips and tears in my heart

The blood that flowed

The scattered whiskey bottles

There are cuts….

Scars from their words

It’s me…. A broken little girl
