So one day I was at home and just decided to start writing and this is what I came up with. It's not one of my best pieces of work but I thought that it would be nice if i shared a little something will you all. Hope you enjoy :-)

More than what meets the eye

So much more that lies within

Best described as a quiet storm

Powerful words when spoken

But often times I wonder when will the rain end

Or maybe as a Redwood tree

Though slammed with life’s adversities

I still stand tall

Tall even though;

Harsh words eat at me to break me down within

I stand tall no matter what my environment is

Or maybe as a young child

Needing to be comforted when afraid

Because the world at times can be a very scary place

Or maybe just as me

Afraid to fully love and trust so I keep my guard up

Filled with so many emotions like a volcano ready to erupt

Standing tall and pushing forward no matter what comes my way

Stepping out and speaking out with a lot to say

Sometimes misunderstood so just be patient with me

For there is much more to me than you can see
