The Broken Pieces of my Heart

August 29, 2009

I'm just your average girl,
There"s nothing really special about me
I'm not what you would call pretty
I do have a lot of friends
And I like to laugh
I don't like to be the center of attention
I prefer to hide
I cover my flaws in make-up
And I care too much about what people think or say
I am naive and gullable
And at times I'm very clumsy
I find it had to look into peoples eyes
for fear they may not like what they see
I cannot trust anybody
I've been hurt too many times My heart has been stolen
Ripped apart and broken
But if stop and think about it
And take the time to look
Im crying out for help
Looking for someone who actually understands
So, if I refuse to show the real me
Then stop me
And show me you understand
And that you feel the same way
And I'm not alone
You might just get to see
The broken pieces of my heart.

This poem was during a time when people around me judged me, accused me of lying, and i felt as though i was alone, and anytime someone asked me what was wrong, i smiled and told them nothing and the moment i turned around i would silently say to my self " Everything"

that is a really honest poem. it is so true in the world today. we all hide our cries with the smile. its the smile that everybody has perfected througout their life. this shows that we need to show our hurt so somebody could say "i understand" or " i went through that too"
