If You Saw Me

If You Saw Me

A Poem by Kacee

I was fourteen when I wrote this and when I found it in my jounral I couldn't believe how depressing a fourteen year old could be. Haha.

Maybe if you go there
deep inside my head
Maybe if you crawled to the spots
where the lights gone dead

Maybe If you see
the girl under neath the coats
Maybe if you heard
the soflty laying notes

Maybe if you understood
the girl I've come to be
Maybe if you looked away
from the girl you think you see

Maybe if you hide yourself
from our troubled race
Maybe if you look
to see the real true face

Maybe if you would accept
the girl I have come to be
Maybe if you tried
You'd accept a girl like me

WOW, I can't believe you wrote this at14. It flows great, has great emotion and brings the reader in. Nice work.

simple and thats the beauty of this.

An appeal for objectivity. That in and
of itself is a stroke of beauty for a 14 year
I think the poem is fresh, honest and objective.
Well constructed and tastefully done.

Impressed at the depth a fourteen year old can not feel, bet portray. Wonderfully done.

I am an adult who has found myself trapped inside a teenage body. I am searching for ways to reach out to people, and be a part of something bigger then myself. Although many see writing as a chore, I.. more..
