What You Do Not See

I look in the mirror

I don’t like what I see

So I try not to eat and I try not to breath

I cover every inch of my body

And take sleeping pills till I am groggy

In hopes that it will work like an antibody

For the words coming out of the mouth of somebody

Telling me I am nobody

Making me believe that I am a burden to anybody

And I wish I was dead for the sake of everybody

My tears wash away the sorrows momentarily

Making me believe that I am ok, voluntarily

Because tomorrow in a new day and ordinarily

The pain will stay
