'You are not what the world perceives you to be'



You are not what the world perceives you to be

You are not the broken heart once worn out on a chain

Shattered glass desolates on the floor

Pounding in your head

The warning sign urging you to stop

Before your soul is relinquished and you wind up dead


When you dream you are a king

Shall you never bow your head

“Friends” who chose to taunt you

Mentally perished alongside their dignity

All you want is fantasy

Till you wake up in this world

Held against your will

In spite of being happy


But it’s not about clear skin

A face sculpted to perfection

Nor the gap between your thighs

Social media; likes

A waist thinner than your will to survive

Scars you must hide

Tears falling from glazed eyes

You know you’re broken; yet you’ve no one left in to confide


How can you love someone else?

When you fail to accept yourself?

If you’ve no love left to give

These four solemn walls slowly caving in

You seek lost confidence

When all you crave is that self-reassurance


You’re not living

Barely surviving

Though the passion in your mind is thriving

These thick walls were only built to protect yourself

But all they do is exclude yourself


Your self-hate forebodes a greater danger

Though one day you will look in the mirror

Seeing past the broken glass


Realizing you’ve got so much more to offer the world

Then simply being pretty.
