"You Don't Know Me," Romney Leveille, Sixth Grade, PS 207K

You don’t know me

                             Or anything about me                       

 

                             You don’t know where I live

                             Or where I came from

                                     

                             You don’t know where I’ve been

                             Or where I’m going

 

                             You think you know me

                             But I’m wearing a mask

                            

                             And underneath this mask

                             Lies a tortured soul

 

                             A soul that has been hurt    

                             One too many times 

 

                             My life is a mess

                             My heart is in pieces         

                  

          My body drenched in scars                                                             my soul…weakened                                                                                                                                                                          you don’t know me                                                                     
or who I am                                                                                                                                           

You don’t know me                                                            
or about my past                                        
 

No one will ever know me                                                   because they don’t bother to ask                                                           
                             

You don’t know me                                                           
but you do know my mask
