How we really feel, compared to how others see us.

To succeed in life, one must play a part,

An image there is to protect.

To the world at large,

I project a façade

Of confidence and strength.

But looking in my mirror,

I wonder……

 

How could they get it so wrong?

 

The real me is but a shade,

A picture on a wall.

Unobtrusive in the background,

A scared shadow observing all.

The child who worries on the future,

And all that it may bring.

The real me is locked away,

Too afraid to sing.
