How Sad - Poem by Patrica Hodge

How sad to still be
wondering who
you are once
you're ripe.
How sad to be
confused at your
own sense
of self. How sad
to be so scared.

Pathetic. On rare occasion
I see through
the eyes of another
congeniality, they do
know not the dark secrets
they would run far away.
