On the outside I am a Superhero,
A lively, ambitious girl anyone can count on.
No matter the risk, anguish, or pain it causes me,
I will do anything I can to help others with a smile on my face.
On the inside however is where I console my secret identity.
I am lost, hurt, self-conscious, and ashamed.
I have bruises and scars to show the effects pain has put on me.
I slowly mend, but never will disregard.
I am two completely different people but never let the other self show.
Everyone knows a superhero never reveals her secret identity.
