Listen to my story
And you will hear
Of love, anger
Of doubt and fear.

Stare at your reflection
Stare long and hard.
What do you see?
I see a human being.

I see imperfection.
I see words that cut to the core.
I see self-hatred.
I see worthlessness.
I see something that will never, ever be
good enough.
I see scars on the inside and out.
I see fear, paralyzing fear.

Don't you see?
You're looking at me.

@SammieLoue I don't have anything other than poetry right now. I've dabbled with songwriting but it's really not my thing. If I do write something different and new, I'll let you know!

I have been reading a few of your pieces and I was just wondering if you have any thing other than poetry. If not that's cool because you are totally rocking this poetry thing but I would love to read more of your work.
