The real and the fake you

The ‘you’ others know
Contrasts sharply with
The ‘you’ that you really are;
The ‘you’ you don’t want others to know;
Contrasts sharply with the ‘you’
You like everybody to know.
The ‘you’ inside your mask,
is different from the ‘you’
Outside your mask.
The fake ‘you’
Contrasts sharply with the real ‘you.’

  2. This is true. People do wear a, mask. It is sadly true. We are not totally honest. If we were, we might hurt each others feelings. I only know one person who speaks what she thinks.
