Kera Davis

I Am Someone

Have you ever been told you are no one?
You know that you’re someone
But deep down you begin to think its true
It hurts your soul
You think to your self
“How can you tell me that I’m not someone, ”
“We both have names, ”
“Just because we don’t look the same, don’t make me a no one”
Deep down you don’t know the pain I feel
How being told I’m no one hurts
But I put on a fake seal
To hide the way I feel
Cause no one understands the pain and struggle that I seal
Only one person knows,
That’s me
Because I am someone.

    You believe in yourself don't care about what people say about you that is negative. Think positive in yourself. Very well written Kera. (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
