Shaded Window

Outside you’re smiling

Everyone sees

You are who you are

Everyone agrees

Who you are

is what you give

What you choose to show

is how they see you live

a window to the soul

no one ever truly looks in

Only you know

Through the experiences of when

Yesterday’s promise

Today’s not yet broken

Understanding the true you

Never really the token

No one really knows

The real you inside

For now you’ll stay

Just where you reside

Maybe one day

You’ll finally be free

Free to show who you are

And become more than what we see

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one was writing after a popular girl in my senior class read some of my work and asked me to write one about what I thought of her. IE, here it is. She said she liked it a lot and I was a good writer. :D
