Why?

People ask me that question all the time.

Why is the sky blue?

Why is there violence in the world?

Why are you hiding your feelings?

I tend to be in the shadows,

closed off from the world.

Nobody knows how I feel.

Why?

Because it's hard to pull back that curtain, 

to let others see the real show.

Instead what they see is a mask,

floating about a sea of darkness.

Darkness that pulls me in and will continue to unless...

I pull back that curtain and let the light shine through. 

The light that is me,

pure and kind.

I am tired of that curtain.

Sometimes I just need to click my heels together 3 times 

and remember what is real.
