I don’t belong here, she says
To the girl in the mirror.
A reflection of herself.
Staring back, silently pleading for help.
She’s tried, but she can’t do it by herself.
When she’s on the inside, looking out.
She’s begging for mercy,
From the pain that never seems to cease.
But they don’t hear.
And they can’t see.
What this world has done to her.
What it has done to me.
