Behind The Curtain

 

I stand 5 feet tall. 

 

With a beautiful mask to hide my flaws.

 

I'm trapped in my own mind, scared to reveal the true me.

 

I'm just afraid of what others might think.

 

Yes, it shouldn't be that way..

 

But sadly it is.

 

I'm trying to change my outlook & redirect my perspective.

 

But I look in the mirror and I see a low confused girl.

 

She isn't what people think.

 

The bubbly lovable one, ready to take on the world.

 

If anyone knew how I was behind the smooth silky curtain,

They will think I'm weak.

 

Over emotional & over dramatic of what people may think.

 

But I am only human.

 

With many insecurities to follow in my path.

 

Scared to speak my mind, for many may laugh.
