Under The Surface


She know she's pretty,

but beauty is only skin deep.


They can't see 

the scars inside.


They don't know the pain

that's hidden by these layers.


She wants to be noticed

for other than her looks. 


She wishes someone would 

know her for who she is. 


But no one bothers to

see what's under the surface.
