What Do You See?

When you look at me
What do you see?
A teenage girl
With a heart filled with hope
A smile that brightens a cloudy day
Eyes that sparkle with joy

When you look at me
What do you see?
A teenage girl who is growing up
too fast.
With a broken heart
A smile that is forced
And eyes that glisten no more.

Are these two separate girls
Or just one who has lost all hope
One who was once happy
When you look at me
What do you see? ?

This is a great piece, two sides to the story..nicely writen.. its one girl with two side.. one thats what she use to be.. and the one she is now. heartbroken, with less hope.. love will find you again in the future, hope comes along with it. it might seem dark now.. just wait the light will come. better days will shine again.
i saw a girl is in dilemma.......to get the real meaning of humanisation......good and bad.........pretty and ugly........hate and love..........a dilemma...
