I walk down the hallway

 

Making it look like everything is okay

 

But really inside of me

 

Everything is wrong

 

I know that beauty is supposed to be skin deep

 

But my insecurities get the best of me

 

I don’t think my face is pretty

 

I don’t think my hair is soft

 

I don’t think my body is right

 

I don’t think I’m “hot”

 

Every time I walk around school

 

I think of what other people say about me

 

I know they think I’m immature

 

But really I have been through so much

 

I try to be the real me  

 

But clearly that’s not what they want

 

I constantly get picked on

 

I get pushed down

 

And reminded of my insecurities

 

I find myself at home crying

 

Because I hate myself

 

I hate the way I look

 

I hate the way I act

 

I feel like nobody likes me

 

But after I fall into the black hole of my feelings

 

The only way I can go is up

 

So I push myself every morning

 

To stop crying

 

To stop feeling hurt

 

And I make sure

 

That when I’m with others

 

I don’t let them control what I think

 

I make sure I’m with the ones I love

 

The ones who like me for who I am

 

The friends that are real

 

And the family that is always there for me

 

And I just let them take me away

 

Away from the bullies

 

Away from my insecurities

 

And onward to happiness
