What You See - Poem by Tyreeka Johnson

Loser,
Loner,
Liar,
It's what they love to call her.

Smart,
Sassy,
Sweet,
Is what her loved ones see.

Dirty,
Filthy,
Trash,
It's her name in class.

Lonely,
Empty,
Defeat,
It's what she feels like when she sleeps.

Stupid,
Softy,
Geek,
It's what you want yourself to see.

    This brings a powerful message. Almost like high school; people stereotyping others but doesn't know true forms of people.
