Show Me

Show me what you see

I have many doubts and they come with a very expensive fee

They trap me, not allowing me to be completely free

I am begging you…

Show me what you see because all I see are flaws

And you love me the hardest when I fall

You call me beautiful and I blush

But what you don’t know is that I don’t believe you

My mind is rushed with insecurities and self-doubt, yet you still love me just the way I am

Maybe if I could see myself through your point of view

Maybe if I could see myself through your eyes

Then maybe just maybe…

I would finally accept myself

My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
