How? - Poem by Tori Godwin

How do I tell you about my life?
When I haven't fully come to terms with it myself
How do I tell you what is wrong with me?
When I am not for sure, either
How do I tell you what I have done?
When I am just too ashamed of myself
How do I tell you who I am?
When I cannot stand who looks back at me in the mirror
How do I fully love you?
When I loathe myself too deeply
How do I share my feelings with you?
When I cannot depict what they are much of the time
How do I trust you?
When I am unable to completely trust anyone anymore
How do I be myself around you?
When myself is the one thing I am afraid to be
How can I be...me?
