Who Do You See

The me that you dont know,
she is the feelings that i dont show.
Consealed destruction in my mind,
immortality I search to find.
Everyones words eating at my soul,
parts of my sainity locked in a hole.
Secrets and words you can not hear,
they are far beneath the drugs and beer.
I look in the mirror this is what I see,
a terrified soul yearning to be free.

I wrote this poem as a teen,(many many years ago) No I was not a drug addict. I was a teenager whom as many could not show my true self for fear of ridicule.

This poem perfectly describes how most teenagers feel growing up, including me. The struggle for finding yourself is a long and hard journey, especially when being yourself is different than what your peer group expects you to be. I will definitely remember this poem. Keep writing!

I really get a sense of the fear and inner pain, It makes you want to reach out and give a hug and say, don't worry we're all afraid deep inside.

Really well written through foregrounding and marked syntax has really nice ambiguity and imagery yet suggests a clear intention and meaning. I'd really appreciate your feedback if you wouldn't mind!
