What Do You See?

What Do You See?

A Poem by Tori Jones

What do you see when you look at me
Am I beautiful 
Am I nice to see
What do you see when you look at me
Am I smart
Am I bright
Such as a light would be
What I see when I look at me
Is a painful soul
Alone and without any hope
And a girl who has never been bold
What do you see when you look at me...?

This is an interesting poem ... really captures how one feels when questioning his or her own identity. Sometimes, other people can see the beautiful parts of you that your eyes could never see. Even when you look in the mirror and all you see is "a painful soul / alone and without any hope," there is always someone who sees that bright ray inside you. That's something that keeps me going when I'm down. It's good to know that other's care.
