Look At Me

Nadia F., Brooklyn, NY By NadiaFilanovsky, Brooklyn, NY

Look at me
Take a look
A good long look

Look at me
The girl with the four color pants and the silver docs,
Spike earrings hanging from my ears
Looking like a tough Williamsburg hipster
Which isn't that far off

Do you see ME?
Do you see the delicate soul?
The dainty little girl behind the punk fa├žade?
Can you peer into me?
See the pain I've been through;
The weary eyes that I try to make look "happy"?

Why do I do it?
Hide my innermost, deepest feelings
While blabbering on about hearsay
And other nonsense
Why do I sometimes fear that my best friend would judge

Thanks so much, I was just trying to write about how people often put up these fake facades to cover up their deepest fears, secrets and whatnot. Glad you enjoyed it!
