"I loved all the boys with soft sad eyes and lost souls." -Grace Coddington


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!

As freshmen we looked at the seniors and said, "someday that will be me." As seniors we look at the freshmen and ask, "wasn't that just yesterday?"

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.
