What is it you see when you look at me?
Pent-up energy, smothered feelings
Impossible rage, oblivious determination
A flood of emotions begging to be set free.
Nothing lasts forever
So I'll cherish what I've got
How could I listen to my mind
When my heart is breaking apart?
Unchanging as the sea,
Ceaseless as the wind-
A young girl's will, fighting for domination.
These eyes are filled with wonder
This soul bursting with fright
My life wavering in the wind
All instincts scrambling for the light.
One wand'ring child, alone in the wilderness
In the cold unfeeling light, silent and resigned-
Staring upon a scene of breathtaking beauty
Wishing, wanting- simply to be seen.
