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.
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.
