You don’t see what I see

You see the pretty girl with long hair and a predisposition to be nice to everyone
I see a broken face with dark thoughts and a history of sadness

You see a jock with a million girls and a tendency to break hearts
I see a boy with a dysfunctional family and a fake facade

You see the hot popular cheerleader with perfect skin and a superiority complex
I see a flawed girl with an imperfect childhood and a thousand insecurities

You see the sweet teacher who calls every student her child
I see the woman who’s had 2 miscarriages and craves nothing more than a child

You see the boy who aces every test and is annoyingly good at everything
I see the child who tries and fails to do his parents proud every time

You don’t see what I see

You see what they show you
I see what they try so hard to hide

You don’t see what I see

Because you see the mask
And I see what lies inside
