Within - Poem by Jennie Renee Sparrow

Tell me does the underdog ever win
I get so close but then something always happens but nobodies listening
Can you hear me cause you don't know nothing

I'm starting to think that ones like me don't exist
That's why I was always invisible you couldn't even see me
I thought that I was wrong and my fairy tale had a twist
But in the end I'm still a nobody that can't be seen

Wake up wake up I try to escape from this nightmare
Everyone else is satisfied with their life but I am not
I cried out in my sleep I cried out loud for my mom but she wasn't there
Then I realized that this isn't the past how could I forget

Now I'm a grown woman
I tried to put my big girl panties on
But when I try they just don't fit
I've tried my hardest I just can't win
I've fought real hard, long, and strong
My hands are tied but my story is legit

Take a deep breath and look real deep and hard
For the person I'm meant to be
Wish I could have meant something from the start
Now it is myself that I cannot see
My minds getting weak, I am getting older and so is my heart

It hurts every time it beats
I am my very own terror
I find my heart below my feet
As I look in the mirror

Where have I been
Where have I gone
I can no longer be seen
I think that I was wrong

So if you see me in the street
How will you know
If it's really me
If it is would you say hello

I am a master of my own disguise
Guess no one will ever know me for me
I've heard all the excuses, alibis, and lies
But no matter whoever it is that I end up to be
I have always known that you cannot force the blind to see
