VALTOYBOB! Role models

My untold story,

my hidden part,

my silent cry,

my fearful fight,

A struggle indeed.

I don’t want to.

I constantly dread

seeing my reflection.

Doesn’t make me smile anymore.

Days of happiness,

Nights long full of uncertainties,

Why and how,

When and where,

What if’s gracing my thoughts.

Next person all rosy.

I’m only forced to compare.

Am I not seen?

My voice not heard or actions unnoticed?

How much more do I have to faith it?

How long do I have to wrestle?

Fake a smile or frame a lie?

Only to cover my insecurities.

I only want to be me again,

The one who doesn’t accept fate,

That sweet girl whose dreams were beyond her.

The one who graciously slides,

trusting effortlessly the One within.

The girl who cares with so much purity.

These times, those times,

sincere desires.

Untold truth,

All a mixture in one human,

The me-tale!
