Expressing yourself

One of the ways I used to express my emotions when I was younger was through writing poems. This was especially helpful when I was going through a bout of depression. Here is one of my poems from my teenage years.

The Girl

Who is this girl?

The girl I can’t see.

I look in the mirror

And see only me.

There is a girl residing in me

This one that I can’t see.

She got hurt somewhere along the way,

So I tucked her far away.

As long as she hides inside of me,

Deep inside where no one can see.

She will be safe and get hurt no more.

She is safe to cry forever more.

But something I am learning

As years pass along,

She may be safe

But healing won’t come along.

She cries in there deep inside of me.

The hard part is that I can see.

Every time I look in the mirror.

I see her staring back at me.

I am the one

Who got hurt one day.

I am the one

That cries every day.

I am the one

Who is scared to be seen.

I am the one

Who is on my knees.

I am the girl.

The girl I couldn’t see.

I look in the mirror

And see only me.
