Fly with you all,

So recently, I’ve been thinking about how people tend to make assumptions about people they don’t know very well, which led to me writing this poem. Like a lot of these freestyle poems, I wrote it from a personal perspective, because I like to think it makes it a little more authentic, but I’m thinking of trying to stray from that tactic in some future poems to try and improve my skills a little, rather than just spewing an emotional rant onto the page all the time. Of course, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that – initially, I started writing these poems as a method of expressing my emotions and/or opinions without having to go to the trouble of writing an entire short story about it, but I’d like to try some different ways of approaching such things.

Hopefully that paragraph made sense… It is pretty late at the moment.  😛

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.  🙂

Just See Me

They look at me

And remember

The weird kid from primary school

The nerd who always had her head stuck in a book

The odd one out

They look at me now

And see a someone

With messy hair

With dirty glasses

Someone who’s socially awkward

Who’s always tired

Who’s childish

Someone average

Who struggles with her subjects

Who always sits at the back in class

And sometimes,

When she’s alone

Looks sad, or lonely

They look, but never see

How far I’ve come

Since the lunch breaks sitting alone

Reading because I didn’t feel like I fit in

Never see the trails I’ve overcome

The attempts to learn from my mistakes To better myself

Never see the late nights I spend

Writing stories and editing videos

Trying to create something

That may brighten someone’s day

Even if it’s only one They don’t see that I’m trying so hard

To ignore society’s expectations

By not spending hours

Doing my hair and makeup each day

By owning my inner fangirl

And trying to be myself

By embracing

The five-year-old I am at heart

They don’t see that I may struggle with my studies

But I keep trying because I’m passionate about them

They don’t see that I’m not necessarily sad, or lonely

But simply reflecting, thinking

About life

About my past, what I’ve overcome

What I’ve achieved

And what I want to achieve in the future.

They look, but they don’t see.

Just once, I wish they’d see me.

The funny thing is, I actually had a few friends tell me recently that their first impressions of me when we first met a few years back was that I looked sad and lonely, when realistically, I was just really antisocial and always lost in thought (and still am).  😛

Quick Update: So I’m in my last couple of weeks of school and have a few assessments coming up that I’ll be focusing on, and then the day after I finish, I’m going for an operation to get my tonsils and adnoids out, which I’m mildy terrified about, not just because of the immense pain I’m apparently going to be in for two weeks, but more importantly, the fact I won’t be able to eat most types of food during that period of time.  D:

Because of this, I may not get a chance to post for the next few weeks, but I’ll try my best to keep up with the blogging community as best I can. Maybe I’ll even get some writing done whilst I’m recovering from my operation… Who am I kidding, I’ll probably spend the entire two weeks on YouTube I’ll guess we’ll just have to see what happens!  😉  😛

Thanks for reading,

– Rose  ❤

Also, a huge thank you for 9,000 views! That’s an insane number, I can’t quite believe it.  🙂
