About the Poem
This poem describes how we all tend to hide our true self from the outside world in order to be accepted. We are never sure what we want to share and what we want to hide. But as we accept it we become more comfortable with ourselves and with other people. We constantly run from our weaknesses hoping that they will soon go away. But I have faced mine and realize I am anything but perfect in this world of savages.

I See Me
When I look into these eyes
I find things no one else ever catches a glimpse at
I see this fear of judgment
that makes her cower at confrontation
I see this hopelessness for the future
that make her choices her burden alone
I see this desperate need for companionship to make her strong
in the savage world of humans
I see this courage
caged in her thoughts of inferiority
I see these thoughts of abandonment
that make her cling to anything
I see this devotion to her beliefs
that makes her fear death
And I hate that the person I always see is me.
