POEM| I See You

I see you
all of you

the you hidden beneath your smile and bubbly personality
the you that curls up and cries when no one is watching
the you that’s confused half of the time
the you that’s living a lie

the you that keeps praying for everything and anything
the you that often thinks about ending it all
the you that’s unsure of what they’re doing
the you that’s coasting and believes that as long as you’re breathing, you’re fine

I see you
all of you
the you you think no one else sees
