I am the One

I am the one whom you will always see, but never hear.
I am the one slipping, silently, singing to myself in the corner.

Slipping? Yes, I guess that would be accurate.
I am the one that is full of talent



But you won’t let me use it.
You pull me down



But none the less surely it is you that pulls me down
I recognize you
You’re in my line of vision when I walk
You’re in my friends when I talk to them
You’re in my head when I think
You know no love, just money


Thank you media, for hurting me

It was only ‘til now I that I can recognize the mirror as beautiful.

And I don’t need you.
