Try being me.A Poem by Tabitha t
I am the girl that everyone wishes they could be.
dating the jock.
When you have the looks,
Who needs to hit the books?
Ive heard them whisper.
I can see them stare.
I smile and laugh.
let it roll off my back.
would they still want to take my place?
If they knew the truth?
My grades are slipping.
My parents dont even notice.
Mom is a drinker.
lost in her own stupor.
father is a business man.
late night rendevous.
I drink to make the pain stop.
covering dark eyes with layer after layer of paint.
Must stay strong, must stand high.
even when all I want to do is fall to my knees.
Why do I feel the need to please?
I would trade in a moment.
Let them have the empty house.
who only dates me for status.
I want nothing more then to,
strip myself of the status quo.
Do you think the will ever really know?
Try being me.
