Losing Myself

January 25, 2009
By Brandy Smith, Shelbyville, IL

I don't want to be afraid
I want to wake up feeling that everyday
I know I'm going to be okay
Because it seems like everyone around me is perfect
In the usual way; except for me
I just want to believe in myself
The mirror tells lies
Because it can't show what's amazing inside
Or what you can hide just by putting on a smile
I'm quickly finding this all out
So, I'm not about to break down now
I know I am going to stay strong
And make it through each day
I guess I always knew I had enough strength to make this happen
