Full of shame

She hides ashamed of everything.
Ashamed of her peace-loving father
Ashamed of her dying mother
Ashamed of her embarrassing grandparents
Ashamed of her crush on the geekiest guy in school
Ashamed of her average to failing grades
Ashamed that she still sleeps with a teddy bear she’s had since second grade
Ashamed that she has false friends
Ashamed in her taste of music
Ashamed in her puffy afro
Ashamed in her different colored eyes
Ashamed in her heritage
Ashamed in her style sense
Ashamed of her existence
And it appears that she’ll do anything to get rid of that feeling.
Including the unthinkable
Which is confronting it
If only she had the guts to do it.
