I don't know why

I say the things I say. I try

to keep my mouth tied

in a knot that can never be undone.

I aspire to be


Not so that people can't hear me

but so they don't see me.

So they don't look at me.

Because the first thing anyone notices about me are my eyes.


Near black, hiding things no one knows.

Thoughts lurk that I don't allow myself to think about.

Who knows what kind of things I see?

I don't.

I don't look.

It just takes the beauty away.

Girls like me don't deserve to be happy.

We never did anything for the world.

I never did.

Just another little girl,

trying to be.
