Is This What People See?

Is this what people see?

Just the material me

Average, blue-eyed, blonde-haired me

Nothing sets me apart

Besides my lack of care for myself

 

Is this what people see?

The sweats and mix-matched clothes

The skin that is so white

The face and eyes so dull

The lack of a chest

 

Is this what people see?

The white legs and dirty shoes

The skinny belly that will always be

The crazy hair that's always in a pony tail

The face that says who cares

 

Why can't people see?

The sharp eyes that analyze everything

The hands that never sit still

Always wanting to be doing something

The clothes that say I do care

 

Why can't people see?

The athleticism in my constant bouncing leg

The brain that shows I am not dumb

The face that says I want you to know the real me

The hair that means I'm ready

 

Why can't people see?

I want to fit in, but don't know how

I constantly feel alone even with friends

Just because I usually don't care about myself

Doesn't mean that I don't care about you
