I'm Not The Person You See


I tried to be her but couldn't do it.
She was always the beautiful one, so smart and talented.
I lingered in her shadow.

I tried to make you proud.
I searched for your acceptance but found myself instead.
I stopped trying to be like her and realized it was never worth it.

She has so many gifts and yes, she is quite beautiful.
I realize that I'll never ber her but I don't want to.
I have my own gifts to show the world.
I am determined to be seen in my own light.

One day you will look at me and see who I really am.
