You Really Dont Know Me

Poetry By: SoulShadowWalker
True confessions

Why is it that people who you've spent the most time with think they know you but in truth do not at all?

You Really Don't Know Me

You think you've got me figured out

and that is something i highly doubt.

You think you know who I really am.

You think I have some type of plan.

Everything I do, I do to make you proud

but it seems that you dont care

No matter how much i shout out loud.

All the time you peg me

as some ridiculed slut.

What is it you want from me?

because my mind is stuck in a rut.

I try to be perfect the way you want me to be

and i never really can be myself, me.

I know i havent been always been

the best person to know

but when I tell you the truth,

you tell me no.

Im not trying to be someone else

I dont want to change what I am

I am the lone book on the shelf

Never changing is my real plan.

I only want to make you proud

will you let me?

Will you open your eyes and see what im trying to be?
