"When life knocks you down, you can choose whether or not to get back up." - The Karate Kid

They glance at me. Staring at me, like I am some foreign exchange student.

They do not know me. They do not know what I am like.

Sometimes I feel like I am invisible, but my true instincts is to be Known.

I walk in the hallways, I hold my books, watching where to step so I do not fall or embarrass myself.

Self-confidence? Well, it is there, sometimes. I just have to dig deep, take a breath, and explore through the lines. No more hide and seek. Time to be me, and shine.

The author's comments:
I hope that people read this, maybe even connect to it, and see the truth behind it. You can't live under a shell your whole life. The sun doesn't hide all day, just at night. Just like humans, we can't hide all day and all of our life. Come out, show your personality, and shine.
