I jumped through hoops,
and skinned my knees,
in hopes that you
would notice me

Erased my thoughts,
always agreed,
and prayed that you
would care for me.

I changed my style
and how I speak,
hoping that you
start loving me.

You then approved,
and filled with glee,
not knowing you
did not know me.

Until one day,
I set you free,
returning back
to find true me.

On that same day,
I let you see,
the shine that glowed
inside real me.

We then embraced,
our destiny,
and formed a life
for you and me.

Acceptance for
being unique,
allowed us both
to be happy
