Written By Sumati Varma (Grade 9)

She hid from the world, 

In her own insecurities she curled. 

Kept inside her own thoughts, 

An image her mind would always cross. 

An image of her, 

About what people’s assumptions were. 

Assumptions about her flaws, 

Or the darkness within herself she draws. 

But no one see’s it, 

That she is losing herself bit by bit. 

Because she covers the truth, 

By her external looks and age of youth.

Circumstances cruel, changed my way...
