Visions of Me

Visions of Me

A Poem by OliviaOwens

You look at me and what you see
Is different from my view of me.
I see a girl who doesn’t think
She tries enough. Not swim but sink.

You see me as the greatest mother
Who works her hardest, can’t be better.
I see a mom who hasn’t fought
Her hardest is just not enough.

You see a pretty girl who’s great
Who makes you laugh, the perfect mate.
I see a girl who’s full of doubt
Pretty she’s not, inside or out.

You call me beautiful, amazing
Your confidence in me is blazing.
I am unsure of everything " of me.
I don’t feel free, I’m lost at sea.

They say that life has ups and downs
You’re always up, I’m full of frowns.
I’m always hopeless, see all dark
But you can always find a path.

I often wonder how you found me
The girl who is forever gloomy.
You’re happy and so full of life
All I can see is afterlife.

You try so hard to make me see
My worth and not my agony.
You don’t give up but I’m afraid
One day you’ll say, ‘I have been swayed.’

I’ll never know how you can see
The pretty girl inside of me.
I don’t deserve someone like you
Who loves me so wholeheartedly.
