Looking back at past memories,
Life hadn't been so great to me,
Things went up and down,
I tossed my life around.

I tried to rebel, but I failed,
Found out, no one really cares,
I blamed my family and friends,
When is the madness gonna end?

There is so much more to me,
More than you'll ever know or ever see,
You didn't give me a chance,
So, you'll just get a glance,
At the portrait of me.

I like pretty colors,
I dance in rainy weather,
Writing expresses my pain,
Does it make me insane?

You tell me that I'm beautiful,
But you won't date me.
You say I have a pretty smile,
But you wouldn't look at me.

There is so much more to me,
More than you'll know or ever see,
You didn't give me a chance,
So, you'll just get a glance,
At the portrait of me.

Years will go by,
You'll see me again,
Asking me questions,
Like how have I been?

You'll want your chance,
But it'll be too late,
I have moved on,
My heart is in a new place.

There is so much more to me,
More than you'll know or ever see,
You didn't give me a chance,
So you'll just get a glance,
At the portrait of...me.

thanks for the glance
...into who you are. I think that you and I are alot alike in that we tend to write what's in our hearts and expressing the pain comes most easily and eloquently. Kudos on the killer poem Miz Windsong!
