Who I Really Am


I am strong and powerful

I can say and do things most people can not

I can look myself in the mirror and see everything is ok

I can yell at my father for what he has done

But inside I’m hurt and crying

There’s a smile on my face, but there are tears hiding behind it

I’m sad and angry

I hide behind my words

I fear to look in the mirror for I’ll see the true me

I cry behind doors so no one will see

I feel like two people, but there is only me
