Where Were You?

Personal Poetry

I am that still small voice,

Barely audible beneath the rushing waves that cloud your mind. 

I am the desperate chameleon. 

Constantly changing myself to adapt to my surroundings. 

I am the wide eyed owl. 

Seeing everything, and taking your secrets to the grave. 

I am the girl in the back of the classroom. 

To scared to raise my hand. 

I am bleeding, ruby red water. The tub is filling;

overflowing, oozing with emotions, to painful to endure. 

I was always there. 

But where were you?
