Alone - Poem by Ashleigh Stephenson

I see you sitting there
Staying close to yourself
Not wanting anyone to come around you
When they do, you stare them down
Eyes telling them to go away
Everyone thinks you're wierd
Even though you're not
You just don't want anyone criticizing you
Telling you how to live your life
But when I got to know you
I understood why you act that way
You ask who this person is
It's me
In my mind and in my soul
But I never let anyone see how I feel

    If a fish could talk, a fish that lived in a fish-bowl he would say, stop staring at me
    it makes me angry.for i need to be left alone so i can enjoy my beauty
