The Real Me

April 27, 2009
By , hendersonville, TN
i am not who you think i am.
i am not who i put off to be.
i have a mask that is permanently glued to my face.
nothing but the tears can take it off.
i am the girl in the center of the crowd making everyone laugh.
im the girl with the pretty face that wont let tears ruin her make up.
you want to know the real me, well....
im the girl that was raped.
im really the girl that sits at home alone, crying because i think its all my fault.
im the one that hasnt slept for days because im afraid of what i will see in my dreams.
i just want to be the girl that no one takes for granted.
i wanted to be love and respectedby others.
what i really want...i want to be Me!

I'm sorry this happened to you. I am exactly the way you are, sadly. I hope you and I both can overcome this in the near future.
