Hiding My Secret, Myself


Put on a face

Let no one see

The secret that is me

Differences others won't accept

I put on a mask

So I won't be a reject

Even so, slipping through

My differences

Turning my life askew

"Weird, insane, crazy" they say

all part of my normal day

I deal with it

but still keep it hidden

my true self

to show others is forbidden
