For I fear my haunting eyes disguises a person to jeer.
I hang my head in disregarded beauty under spotlights.
All the while hoping to escape without a fight.
At times I feel high expectations get the better of me.
I feel at times I have to be what others wish of me to be.
So much so that the eyes in the mirror are questioningly mine.
I forever search my soul in hopes that someday Iíll be fine.
I expect to discover confidence through the conflictís tension.
Iím not what others see but can be if I stick to my mission.
I want to hold my head up high without disguise interfering,
or the emotionally disheartening feedback leering.
Accept me for overcoming conflict with confidence spared.
Itís in confidence that with the ignorant I will be prepared.
Accept my imperfections made known to me everyday,
for they are a part of me and with me they will always stay.
