Thoughts that go through so many of our minds
Am I what society thinks of me?
Am I the girl my ex-boyfriend thinks of me?
Am I the person walking down the hall unnoticed?
Or am I the girl who everyone judges?
Am I the girl who will never be happy in life?
Am I the one people tolerate, but don’t truly love?
Am I a disappointment?
Am I a cutter?
Am I the unforgivable?
Am I better off dead?
Am I the worst sister on earth?
Am I the girl who causes all the problems?
Most of all
Am I willing to let other people and circumstances define who I am?
