I See Me

When I look into these eyes
I find things no one else ever catches a glimpse at

I see this fear of judgement
that makes her cower at confrontation

I see this hopelessness for the future
that makes her choices her burden alone

I see this desperate need for companionship to make her strong
in the savage world of humans

I see this courage
caged in her thoughts of inferiority

I see these thoughts of abandement
that makes her cling to anything

I see this devotion to her beliefs
that makes her fear death

And I hate that the person I always see is me.
